Note: Please excuse any typing errors – we’re trying to move fast.
Right now, Austin is experiencing something no one ever thought was possible, literally, it has 100% never happened.
The suffering here is immense. Food shortages. Unsafe drinking water. Impassable roads. Flooded homes. A humanitarian crisis.
If you have the means to help, below is a list of resources. All of these are local non-profits, so you actually know where your money is going and it moves into action fast, unlike large nonprofits.
