Many JacketFlap members have reached out to me wanting to get involved with helping the victims of Harvey and Irma.
Below are a few ways to get involved!
Make sure it is a real charity. The Salvation Army is accepting donations. Call 800-SAL-ARMY to see how you can help. Check Charity Watch https://www.charitywatch.org/home and GiveWell http://www.givewell.org to make sure the charities you are donating to are legitimate. Unfortunately, during hard times, greedy people take advantage of people in need.
Red Cross is the best place to donate blood. To find a local blood drive go to http://www.redcross.org/give-blood
Help Foster a Pet! Reach out to Austin Pets Alive https://www.austinpetsalive.org/hurricane-harvey-evacuations/
