Over the last several days we've all seen the devastating photos of the destruction in Houston and Louisiana. While the situation may seem overwhelming and the needs just too great - there are many ways you can help. Here is a brief list below.
Salvation Army - Donate Here
American Red Cross - Donate Here
Samaritan's Purse - Donate Here
Other ways to help include donating blood and diapers which are not provided by most relief organizations.
To avoid scams make sure you go directly to an organizations website to donate, do not follow an email link no matter who sends it to you.
Be wary of opening attachments claiming to be ways to help as they may contain malware.
Most importantly, recognize that the relief and recovery efforts will take months or years. Even as the news cycle changes be aware of the needs and ready to give when you can.
