When I started working on this blog post, I began writing from the perspective of someone who lived in Houston in 2005 and witnessed the devastation and long- term effects of those displaced by Hurricane Katrina. I was then going to compare that experience with what just happened in Texas and suggest ways that kids could get involved in supporting Hurricane Harvey Relief, from raising money to collecting donations to send to those in need.
But over the past week, we’ve all been inundated with articles and social media posts about how to provide support after Harvey…
…and as helpful and informative as some of them like this one are (and they are!), I decided to go in a bit of a different direction.
Today, I want to tell a story about Savannah, an awesome For-Purpose Kid in Florida, who came up with her own way to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
And I want to talk about Savannah’s journey of becoming a For-Purpose Kid, over the course of the past year.
