I Hate Green Beans Podcast 13: Hurricane Harvey Relief
After writing about what we went through during Hurricane Harvey, I decided to tackle the “what now?” via podcast. The show is full of useful information about what’s actually happening today, what we are expecting later, and how we are going to stay strong in the meantime.
My roommate Lara and I discuss how you can help in specific ways, in general ways, and how our friend Alissa is mobilizing in creative ways in Fort Worth. Here are a few links that we discuss in the episode that you need to know:
Arise Africa is a ministry that works with vulnerable kids in Zambia. You may remember when Lara and I went on a mission trip there last year and I made her hold a rabbit, while I walked around with a snake on my shoulders like I was Britney Spears.
Alissa is the Executive Director of Arise Africa and has taken it upon herself to go above and beyond supporting us in Houston with a six-week old baby in tow. She’s Superwoman.
Here’s the Amazon wish list that she has put together full of REQUESTED ITEMS. Simply purchase whatever you like and Alissa will make sure it gets to us. She’s that cool and that passionate.
If you are in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and would like to drop off donations, Alissa is taking them at the Arise Africa office. They just moved in today and decided to shove all of their furniture in a corner so they can make room for stuff headed for Houston. Can you believe that?

Just ignore the paint fumes…
Here’s the link to our own church website where we are accepting financial donations. All proceeds will go to individuals in need who have been affected by the flood.
Here’s a link to the Red Cross.
Here’s a link to my fake boyfriend JJ Watt’s YouCare page. He’s raising all sorts of money for Hurricane Harvey victims.
Keep us in your prayers. Love ya, mean it!
