Hi. I started this site Septmeber, 2005, after watching suffering Katrina victims on television. I wanted to help but could not drive there at the time as I was just 14. I decided that since many of the victims of Katrina were being moved to and coming here to Houston, that maybe I could help them out here at home. So I started looking around for volunteer opportunities. There were lots, but not one place to go that had it all or explained things, so I started my own site. The first thing I did was list a lost and found links for people to find others. I listed Craigslist and other more official sites. Then I had a daily update for volunteer jobs at Harris County Volunteer. With my help in my area we raised about $1,000 in new school supplies for displaced kids that were going to start school in Houston but had no stuff like backpacks and such.
I eventually transfered that site to this one, but unfortunately lost many things, so I am rebuilding it again in hopes that maybe Houstonian's will still come here to look for ways that they can help. Anyway, its a work in progress as I don't have as much time anymore to do it. Hopefully when I get to college I can expand it with some help with other students into something much better. If you want to get in touch with me about it, just comment here.
