12 Sep Help Us Make a Difference
On August 25, 2017, Hurricane Harvey devastated Houston, TX and the surrounding areas. At least 50 people have been declared dead across eight counties, and the damage continues to grow as flood waters begin to recede and rescue efforts transition into recovery. Not even two weeks later, on September 9, 2017, Hurricane Irma began its deadly climb from the Florida Keys, up through Marco Island and Naples in the southwest, Miami in the southeast, and as far north as Tampa. Irma has claimed at least six lives. Thousands across the state and the country wait in limbo to learn the fate of their loved ones, and evacuees anxiously wait to hear what kind of home, if any, they will find upon their return.
At Modern Promos, we believe in the power of community. We have built our business around people making meaningful connections within their local communities. That’s why we’re working hard to help support our colleagues, clients, and the community affected by both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.
We’ve started a CrowdRise campaign to raise funds for the rebuilding of Houston, TX and southwest Florida with a goal of $50,000. You can access the CrowdRise campaign and make your contribution here:
Every penny donated will go directly to the American Red Cross to help fund their relief efforts.
Modern Promos is proud of the work our brand ambassadors have done in Texas and Florida, and we are honored to play a small part in helping rebuild the communities, so many of us know and love. We hope you’ll consider donating what you can – every dollar counts and brings us closer to our goal.
We will match the first $10,000, bringing our total goal to $60,000. That means your gift goes even further toward helping these communities rebuild.
Too often, we move through life staring straight ahead and focusing on our own lives. But every so often, something happens that stops us in our tracks and demands that we look up. These situations, though often tragic, offer us a compelling reason to reach out to our neighbors in compassion and humanity.
Hurricane Harvey and Irma are two such events, heartbreakingly close together. We believe in the power of people to rise up together to make a difference. We humbly ask that you stand in our corner and show the people of Texas and Florida that they are not alone.
