    For those who want to donate, it is wise to always check the charity and make sure the money gets to the people and not in the organizations pocket. Sadly this happens with every tragedy. The following are charities and their ratings. These are all organizations that are collecting funds for Hurricane Harvey and Houston to provide relief.

    If you're looking for a local charity to support in the wake of Hurricane Harvey please consider Houston SPCA, Houston Humane Society, Houston Food Bank, Food Bank of Corpus Christi, or San Antonio Humane Society. These highly-rated organizations are located in the most-affected areas and are providing support to individuals and animals.

    On the right side of the page linked, is a list of charities and their rating-

    Everywhere I go, I see stores collecting for Hurricane and flooding relief. From rounding up your purchase to bake sales, every penny helps. This will be a long-term recovery and it is heart-warming to see the country stand up and support those in need. When you see the love and generosity, plus the people that have just stopped their lives and headed to lend a hand; lets me know that the true spirit of America is alive.

    The worst of times bring out the best in good people and the worst in bad people; a test none of us wants to take but nonetheless we all hope we will pass.

    Good People are Good People all the time. The worst of times allows the worst of People to rise to thier maximum aspirations. I don't consider myself to be Good People, but I have been the tool to ensure that the worst of US don't reach thier potential. Never a borrower or a lender be, America was built by those that asked for nothing more than an opportunity. Save your charity for the widows & orphans. Allow those willing if not able the dignity of honest labor. JMHO.

    All those people need water, food and clothing. I think charity at this time is critical. Those people in Texas will do lots of honest labor as they try to salvage what they can but if my donations contribute towards a truck of food so they have something to eat then I am sure they will appreciate it.

    It isn't the cost of a case of food or water that slows the process, it's the logistics of getting the food & water into the area's of need that keeps the needy from receiving basic requirements. I'd expect to hear about airdrops to centralized locations on the highest ground if water & food are the top priority?

    LOL, I passed police escorted convoys today on I-10 heading west with trailer loads of goods and water!
    You have no clue of the amount of aid and personal pouring into Texas.

    Since she lived near Houston at one point and is always right I figured that's probably a good one.
