Bump for a good cause. Donated.
Quoted from Xerico:
The trip to Rockport opened my eyes to the devastation that will plague the area for many months, if not years.
These poor souls are going to need help well beyond the lifespan of Hurricane Harvey's fifteen minutes of fame.
But I am proud to say that Pinside and our very generous pinball community made a huge difference to many families this weekend.
Together, $1,500 in cash was distributed to families that lost everything. Many lost their homes and also their jobs as industry in the area took a huge hit.
My heart melted as grown men and women cried when I presented them with $200 cash. I did this for 7 families and I gave $100 to a group that was grilling food and giving it away for free.
I also made sure these same families took a basket full of items to help them get through the next few days and weeks.
Over $1,000 in purchased goods was given away as well as used clothes.
I will post picture later. But from the bottom of my heart, I wanted to thank everyone that donated to this journey. You helped give people hope. And that was just as necessary as bottled water.
Thank you all!
Our turn to thank you for what you did. All I did was clicking on a Paypal button. You gave time and your heart!
