Introducing the Steemit Harvey Relief Fund

Steemit Community Effects Change


On August 26th 2017 category 4 Hurricane Harvey made landfall in the small town of Rockport, TX. The damage from the winds were immediate. As the days progressed, Hurricane Harvey slowly worked it's way to Houston, TX which is the United States 4th largest city. It's also home to the largest domestic oil reserve and refineries in America. Houston and it's surrounding cities received an official measurement of 30 inches of rain. Some ngo (non-government organizations) have estimated 50 inches total. Citizens of humanity sprung into action immediately. This idea and fund was born out of the Steemit Meetup in Austin organized by @RichardCrill and @lindseylambz. We noticed that $50,000 USD worth of bitcoin were raised by Danny Sessoms for Hurricane Harvey Donations in Houston and we wanted to get the entire steemit community involved as well. The plan is to take the liquid funds raised from this initial 7 day payout and present a check to the Houston Hurricane Relief Fund. All efforts after the first 7 day payout will be used to directly help and assist the citizens of Aransas & Nueces Counties which is home to Corpus Christi and Rockport. These smaller towns don't have the same infrastructure or economy as Houston, so they are often last in line for federal assistance. The long-term efforts of @HarveyReliefFund and the steemit community will make sure that they are not forgotten about.

In the video you will see the story of Fernando Medina who was rescued by boat and went out to volunteer by giving away free hot dogs. This story made me pull over and compose myself for a minute.

You will also hear from little Marissa and Miguel who has lost everything, but were still in high spirits.

You also hear about 2 people that loaded up a moving truck with diapers and other essentials. They then drove from New Hampshire and Nashville to Houston and posted up near the shelters to handout emergency provisions.

As long as good people with means keep pitching in to assist, disasters like this won't have to be as bad as Katrina.

Here's a few more tokens for such a worthwhile initiative. Thank you! Namaste :)

Great idea and initiative! Wish the best in these continued efforts of giving.

The plan is to take the liquid funds raised from this initial 7 day payout and present a check to the Houston Hurricane Relief Fund.

What is the plan with the non-liquid rewards? and Why wasn't this mentioned?

·

Rockport, Nueces County and Aransas county direct relief efforts. After the initial 7 days, all efforts will be focused on the "ground zero". By next week, I will be in Corpus Christi on the ground.

All efforts after the first 7 day payout will be used to directly help and assist the citizens of Aransas & Nueces Counties which is home to Corpus Christi and Rockport. These smaller towns don't have the same infrastructure or economy as Houston, so they are often last in line for federal assistance.

what will you be doing with the non liquid rewards ? - great initiative! This has my full support @harveyrelieffund.

·
·
·

All non-liquid and post 7 day payouts will be used to directly assist those in Aransas and Nueces County. That's the area where our efforts will make the greatest difference.

can you tell me how can I raise my upvote up to 0.4$ please? @harveyrelieffund

·

I think you would need over 2000sp.

·
·
·

So the account will be powered down and used to additional funding if understood correctly. Great to hear and thank you for adding this information for more understanding.

·
·

Good question, proper answer, and I agree - Fully supported.

·
·
·
·
Same here!!! I agree! No doubt!!
·
·
·
·

·
·

yeah right

upvoted and followed you, please do the same

Hi harveyrelieffund,
Nice work sir

Such a nice thing!

This is such a sorrowful story it aint funny. This was 1 of the worse storm that cause a massive damage to US and i pray for all the victims who where affected by this storm. May the lord give them peace and help them to rebuild what was destroyed.Amen.

Great cause, upvoted. I think people can say what they want about trump but he is a reasonable person for donating 1 million $$ even if it is only a small amount of his estate!

Very good idea! Steemit makes wonders

I really appreciate you putting this together, and reaching out a helping hand.

·

Absolutely, thank you.

A disaster! i hope you will have some good funds!

I am donating my 100% upvote and would also like to offer you 25,000 POCKET Tokens in my comment below. I believe these 25,000 tokens are worth at least 2.5 SBD based on some OTC transactions I participated in this week. See my blog for more info on those trades. I hope you can find a way to convert them to help for @harveyrelieffund. My advice would be to auction them off to the highest bidder in a Steemit post, with all proceeds going to help victims of Hurricane Harvey, in exchange for SBD or other crypto.

Please see the POCKET Genesis Post at https://steemit.com/pocket/@biophil/genesis-pocket for more info.

pocketsend:25001@harveyrelieffund, to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

Sorry, looks like this didn't work. The @harveyrelieffund account may not be eligible to posess POCKET tokens since it is such a new account. If you can provide another associated account that has been around longer I can try again.

love

My thoughts are with all families and people affected. I hope plenty of help and support is given to you all and the future is a lot kinder to you.

thank you for sharing info brother @harveyrelieffund, I hope those who are overwritten can be patient patiently steadfast, hopefully soon pass

Amazing post .. my heart goes out to everyone out there.

Great post and stunning images. Also a great way to spread the crypto word. Helping others who are in dire need while simultaneously educating them about the advantages of cryptocurrency.

Thank you for the support. This will definitely raise awareness not only for steemit but also for concurrency in general.

I'm glad that Steem is getting involved with helping the relief effort, especially in helping those who are in the less focused areas. This kind of fundraising is a great use of Steem, especially since those who cannot directly donate through cryptocurrency, can do so with their upvote at no cost to them. I wish you and everyone who benefits from your fund the best of luck.

·

Yes and just to think that all of this came from the Steemit Meetup in Austin. We really wanted to extend our efforts and it has gotten us this far.

Up vote and resteem. Good work guys. Charity begins at home.

Good efforts to help homeless people of texas

Awesome stuff guys! Houston and multiple parts of Texas have been devastated. It's pretty darn sad. I live in north east part of Houston and my house was one street away from being flooded. It was insane to see swat vehicles drive by my house and helicopters flying above for days to help people one street over. Keep praying for those still struggling :( :( :(

Best of luck brother. From Houston, uncle lost everything he owns too. Everyone safe though which is the most important

They need as much money as possible. I heard president Trump is donating $1 million of his own money.

This is so heart breaking what is happening to all these victims. This is very kind what you guys are doing here.

Is there any technique for a post to come in trending section because I am feeling jealous seeing your payout money 🤣🤣
