Over the last week, our hearts have ached for Texans who’ve been affected by Hurricane Harvey’s tragic path. It is a devastating tragedy, and so many have experienced loss, pain, fear and even hopelessness. We want to give back to those hurting right now. We want to give hope.
We have been brainstorming over the last week ways that we can help all the way from our small offices here in the Carolinas. So, we have decided to blend our two passions, paper and education, to build a giveback fund for those souls affected by Hurricane Harvey.
With every purchase of our ‘We Rise’ downloadable print, we will give 100% of the proceeds back to the YES Prep Public School system in Houston, Texas.
What is YES Prep? YES Prep is an open-enrollment public charter school system serving students in grades six through twelve in Houston’s most underserved communities.
YES Prep has established the Yes Prep Flood Relief Fund which will will focus on meeting the essential, immediate needs of families of students and alumni, including food; clothing; water; temporary shelter; household cleaning supplies; personal care items; baby supplies; etc. 100% of donations will go directly to families in need.
We are excited to share this giveback project with YOU, dear friends, because we have felt your love and support over the years. We know you will rally behind us, once again, to help restore hope in children and their families.
Today, as we post this blog about the catastrophic Hurricane Harvey, we are also fearful for the outcome of Hurricane Irma. Our thoughts are with those in the Caribbean who are already experiencing the terrible storm. Our prayers are with them and also with those who lie in Irma’s destructive path. Our home sweet home Carolina is in great danger, and we would like to say a special prayer for those close to home.
Please, friends, take caution and safety.
In the coming days, we will make a decision on the expansion of our ‘We Rise’ campaign to include those affected by Irma. Right now, we are waiting to see the outcomes of this storm, so our giveback can help those in the most need.
Thank you for your support, friends.
