OT (hope this is okay) Hurricane Harvey

I hope this is okay to post-please let me know if it is not, and I will delete the thread.

A friend of mine from high school lost her son a year ago today. They started an organization called "Be Like Andrew" because her son had such a giving spirit and always did random acts of kindness for others.

They also have a facebook page, but I can't seem to post a link while I'm logged out.

pharma-gal-if you happen to see this, the family lives in your town, but they are from Hillsborough, where I grew up.

Another high school friend set up a list of places to donate in Andrew's memory. The list and description are below. It is from the Facebook page "be like Andrew"

We are organizing relief for TX in Andrew's name and spirit. We are asking everyone to please donate to a charity (I have listed a bunch below) in the spirit of being like andrew. You can comment on this post to let us know you have done so (you don't have to post an amount). And it doesn't have to be to one of these groups if another one speaks to you more. But in this time where our country is divided we can all do something to help others #belikeandrew.
