    Hello My name is George Verdugo and live in Kansas City I wanted I to set up this page for my Friend Eric Lyon and Family because they lost everything in the Houston Flooding and had to leave his home. If any of you can help him and his familly it would be greatly appricated by them, They did not ask me to this but I felt compelled to do so. Please Help they really need it and have nothing , Furniture, Bedding, Clothing, Computers are all gone due to the Flood. Thanks in Advance #Houston #HoustonFlood #Harvey #Flooding

    *** I figured that 15,000 would help them replace ***some of what they lost in their home.

    It's been a catastrophic event in Houston, the most rainfall in America's recorded history. Imagine being inundated with over 4 feet of nonstop rain.

    +1 support, stay strong @ Eric and family.

    Sorry to hear Eric is going through this, but it is good to see the community coming together to support one of their own. And man, what a story for them just to get a few miles down the road... :nailbiting:

    To repeat the links to donate to help Eric and his family:
    GoFundMe -> https://www.gofundme.com/eric-lyon-fund

    Support Auction - https://www.namepros.com/threads/dispose-net-inflated-net-support-auctions.1038281/


    After donating to Eric's GoFundMe or participating in any benefit auctions I would also encourage you to donate to the general rescue funds out there for Harvey as there are a lot of people in Eric's shoes right now.

    Not trying to hijack this thread in any way - only trying to supplement it...

    Here are a few links to donate directly for Harvey Relief efforts, or you can find more from google of course:

    https://www.redcross.org/donate/hurricane-harvey

    https://www.google.org/harvey-relief/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=hpp&utm_campaign=harvey-donate

    https://www.mercuryone.org/hurricane-harvey/

    And for anyone out there in the Houston area - Stay strong!

    Eric is a fantastic story teller and I am sure that one day he will be telling his grandchildren the story of this crazy hurricane named Harvey. But right now, let's all chip in and show our support no matter how big or small, all little bits will help.

    Sorry to hear Eric is affected by this terrible disaster. Be strong and I hope the family is safe now.

    We went through the exact same thing this year here in Quebec where thousands of homes were damaged by flooding. The only positive thing we see from these catastrophic events is the way people come together to help and support. And Ivana Trump wearing high heels.

    @pablohc86 - if you are new to GoFundMe, see if you can set up your account and activate by your email to verify. I had issues as well since I had not before used GoFundMe, once I verified my email it went through. Check your cc also to see if it was charged and just not showing at GoFundMe, it took a while for the receipt. HTH

    Eric, praying and thinking about you and your family. Keep the positive spirit and faith. All
