The flooding in Texas is far worse than anyone anticipated — forcing at least 30,000 people into shelters and multiple fatalities. It’s a devastating situation that we cannot ignore.

That’s why I’m asking you to make a donation to support local nonprofits in Texas that are helping our friends, family, and neighbors.

Even a small contribution of $5 or $25 — whatever you can spare — can make an incredible difference.

In times like these, we see the best of our humanity through the courage of those who stay behind in times of crisis.

Like the reporter in Houston who stopped in the middle of a live broadcast to help local law enforcement save a man who was trapped in his truck during the weekend’s flooding.

This is the spirit of the American people — when times are tough, we stand together and united. That’s why I’m hoping you’ll make a contribution right now to support local Texas non-profits supporting flood victims.

Please keep the people of Houston and surrounding communities in your prayers and thoughts this week. Thanks for everything.
