"I’ll use the space I’ve been offered to say this: Your aid to Houston after Hurricane Harvey will not be in vain. She’s a thankful kind of girl, our city. Her children try hard to take care of their own, but we’re going to need your help this time. We are devastated. They say it will take many months and perhaps even several years to put us back together again."
"My beautiful friend and writer Stephanie Bennett Henry needs our help. Her and her husband had just finished a full renovation of her childhood home and were preparing to move into it over the next coming weeks when hurricane Harvey hit Texas. She was in the flood zone. Her house consumed by water. The clean up will be long and heartbreaking and without flood insurance or help from FEMA the financial burden to redo all they'd worked so hard on, is a moutainous amount." -Jay Long
"She is grace and truth wrapped in strength and courage. She may doubt herself at times; but she continues to pour her spirit into those at their weakest. She will place herself second for the success of another; while encouraging a stranger to bloom. Those who are lucky will treasure her for life." - Stephanie Bennett-Henry
This fund has been set up by a group of her friends and fellow writers to help best we can. I ask you to please donate what you can. Every little bit helps. Her words have helped heal thousands, now she needs healing. The campaign was started this morning. The link is below, please offer what you can and please share this post to help spread the word.
It's our time to pour our spirit into Stephanie. She's one of us, and she would be there undoubtedly if you needed her... but it's our turn to be there for her. If you're like me, her words have helped you through the worst of times.
Now, let's help her. No donation is too small. Help give Stephanie the aid she would never ask for. Thank you all.
"Please let us not allow the fact that we cannot fix everything keep us from fixing something. Give a little with great love. That's how we heal the world."
