GritoBlast! Hurricane Harvey is breaking all kinds of records for the amount of rainfall, destruction, and the number of people forced from their homes.
- Harvey has broken the record for the greatest amount of rain recorded from a single tropical storm or hurricane in the continental United States, with more than 4 feet of rain.
- An estimate from the analytics firm CoreLogic showed that Harvey, which is now a tropical storm, could cause as much as $40 billion total in damage.
- Harvey will drive 30,000 to shelters in Texas, FEMA says.
Needless to say, it will take lots of financial aid to help all these traumatized victims of Hurricane Harvey.
While there are numerous fundraisers underway to help Houston, it can be difficult to know which fundraiser is credible or even how to choose.
GoFundMe has partnered with Direct Impact Fund to raise money and has not only created a GoFundMe campaign in conjunction with Direct Impact Fund but is also highlighting additional GoFundMe Harvey Hurricane relief campaigns for you to choose which one you directly would like to make a tax-deductible donation.
