The events of past few days in Houston and surrounding areas as a result of the record rainfall is heartbreaking. What is the best way to help?
Please submit your ideas...

I think it has (brought people together). On the news it looked like a good deal of the rescue work was done by neighbors, not formal rescue teams. I also saw where there are lots of people from Louisiana coming in with boats, a beer company stopped making beer and is canning pure water, and a grocery chain is sending a fleet of truck loaded with food.
Outside of shelter people can, and do, accomplish more than government and certainly move faster.
I am volunteering with the American Red Cross, specifically picking up donated blood, plasma, and platelets and delivering them to points where they can be forwarded on to Texas. Donations in my city increased several times over average beginning early Saturday; and Sunday, Monday and Tuesday donations are setting records.
