The devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey has been nothing short of heartbreaking. The National Hurricane Center reports that Harvey has remained almost stationary over the past 12 hours, producing severe flooding with rainfall expected to increase another 15-25 inches over the next few days. Thousands have already been displaced from their homes, while many are still waiting to be rescused.

The impact from Harvey is devastating, but there are ways you can help and show your support. 

The Red Cross and Salvation Army have begun collecting funds and creating relief supplies for victims. You can also text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. 

The South Texas Blood and Tissue Center is in dire need of blood donations. If you're in the area and are able to donate, please do so. You can visit the STBTC website to set up an appointment time. 

Diapers are not provided by disaster relief agencies, so the Texas Diaper Bank is collecting cash and diaper doantions to create emergency diaper kits for families displaced by the disaster. You can visit the donation page at texasdiaperbank.org and designate your donation as Disaster Relief. 

Many animals have also been displaced and are in need of assistance. Check out the following organizations for ways on how you can help.

GoFundMe has also started a hub containing many different Hurricane Harvey Relief funds that you can donate to, or create one of your own.

The U.S. Coast Guard has also asked that people NOT use social media as a means of reaching out for help. Instead, use the following numbers and please consider retweeting them to share with others.

Apple is also accepting donations through iTunes to suppert the American Red Cross. Links to donate can be found on iTunes, with 100% of your donation going to relief funds. 

The Blanco River Recovery Team has assisted over 1,000 families so far, but funds are stretched. You can visit their website to give a tax-deductible donation.

Global Giving is attempting to raise $2 million dollars for funds that will be used exlusively for local relief and recovery efforts. 

Airbnb have launched a site for those seeking a place to stay, as well as for those who can offer shelter. Fees are waived for those who check in before September 1. 

Texting HURRICANE to 20222 will allow you to donate $25 to Save The Children's Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.

Our thoughts go out to the victims of Hurricane Harvey and their families.
