As we all know, this past week was tragic as we watched Hurricane Harvey swarm across the Texas coast. I was born and partially raised in Houston and recognized all the areas where the water took control of everyone’s homes with babies floating in bins, dogs swimming and people waiting to be rescued.
Although the damage was devastating, it is amazing to see the way everyone in the community along with surrounding cities such as Dallas and Austin come together to lift Houston up again. Along with the public, there are brands and public figures who are taking a stand to assist as much as possible and here at Konnect Agency we are proud of the brands that we represent for good reasoning.
For instance, we have many food and beverage and franchise clients such as GoodPop, The Goddard School, The Little Gym and much more leading the way to make an impact as Texas searches for recovery.
A few of The Goddard School locations around Houston are accepting donations and The Little Gym of Memorial, Texas will be opening their doors to families around town to play and feel a sense of relief. GoodPop, a popsicle company based in Austin is putting all their efforts into providing and accepting donations from companies, as they arrange to have trucks filled with items constantly heading back and forth to the Texas Coast. In addition, they are donating $1 for every case of GoodPop sold in Texas, so get to stacking up on these cold treats because it is not only delicious, but it’s for a good cause.
I have been receiving updates from those in Houston and without all the help from those across the U.S. and within Texas, the recovery process would not be as progressive as it is currently. I couldn’t be more happy to work for an agency that represents clients that are always giving back!
