More reasons to go to Texas!

Was emailing with a person from Bridge City and told her that we did not have that many signed up yet. Her reply:

"...consider this: Out of 3500 homes in Bridge City, only 14 didn't receive water. There a loads of people who will need help rebuilding once insurance comes through for them. Lots of these folks are elderly, and there are quite a few handicapped who won't be able to afford to pay high priced contractors to come in and do this work for them.

Also, another thing you might do is go to some of the following sites and show them some of the pictures.
You can google Bridge City Texas and use the keywords hurricane and Ike. This really shows the devastation here.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with ....

One more thing, bribe them with all the good cajun and southern style food they can handle ;)

There you have it. More reasons to come help! Even if for only a portion of the time. You can help and you will be glad you did it.

Just because it is not on the national news every day, does not mean they don't need our help. In fact, they probably need it more since unlike after Katrina, their has not been a hige outpouring of help from across the nation. Blame it on the economy or whatever, but many people still need to be helped. We are going and we'd love to have you with us!
