While pacing through the house watching the events unfold during hurricane Harvey, my mind bounced from one daunting question to another. Will we have to evacuate? If we do what can I take and what can I leave? What about my business, and what about #GirlsNightOut - Sweet Dreams Theme? Should I cancel or reschedule? An even bigger question was how can I contribute to helping the city rebuild? This historic event affected all of us, and even if your home or vehicle wasn’t flooded, watching the community suffer was devastating.
On August 29th I made a spur of the moment decision to create a video and share it on Facebook asking for help to transform #GirlsNightOut - Sweet Dreams Theme, to #GirlsNightOut - Houston Strong, a fundraiser and donation drive to support women and their families affected by Harvey. The response was just as incredible as the outpouring of support that we’ve seen throughout the Houston community and the nation. This event is now a collaborative effort of local influencers that have pulled together their resources ( in less than 30 days), to ensure that we not only offer our community a chance to decompress, but more importantly to support families directly and ensure that every dollar donated goes directly to them.
Here are 10 reasons to love this collaborative event put together by women for women, to help keep Houston strong.
#GirlsNightOut - Houston Strong will happen on September 28th, from 6-9pm at Marq31. There are so many people to credit for making this event happen. Read about them in The “Us” in #GirlsNightOut HoUSton Strong and join us next week in keeping Houston Strong!
