Help 4 Houston
The brave citizens of Houston have been in all of our thoughts here at SOAS. We cannot possibly begin to imagine the nightmare they have been forced to live through these past few days and wanted to do our part to help in any way possible. We felt it was important to take the time to expand on our Help 4 Houston hats for anyone that wanted to help us support those affected by the storm.
Our SOAS Ambassadors and customers are the backbone of what we do, we wouldn't be who we are today without them. Today many of them are currently facing the devastating impacts of Hurricane Harvey. Some of them have been able to evacuate but are forced to stand idly by as they wait to see if their homes end up flooded and pray their close friends and family are able to make it to safety. Every life affected by this disaster matters, and personally knowing some of the impossibly kind people that have been affected by this just makes it that much more devastating.
Every single penny of the proceeds from our H4H hats will be donated to help those in Houston that are facing the storm. We will be setting aside as much of our time as we possibly can to produce the hats and will be accepting orders through Labor Day. We are not making any profits from the manufacturing or distribution of these hats, nor do we feel the need to advertise our actions.
We are sending this message because we feel it is important for everyone to do their part to raise awareness and hopefully galvanize others in turn- to do what they can, in whatever capacity they can. We are sending this message so that those in Houston know that they are in our thoughts and have all of our love and support.
What the citizens of Houston must be going through right now, the anguish and fear - of losing your home or your loved ones, is a feeling we cannot begin to comprehend. All we can do is ensure we help out in any facet we can. We urge everyone to please do the same.
