Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief
Hurricane Harvey made landfall on Friday evening, August 25th, as the first Category 4 hurricane to hit the United States since Hurricane Charley in 2004. It has significantly impacted communities along the Texas coastline, including Houston, as well as other areas along the Gulf with wind and flood damage.
To do our small part to help with the relief and recover efforts, Radicool UV Beachwear is committing to donate 10% of its gross sales in the month of September to the Houston Food Bank on behalf of the Radicool Family. We are not a huge company, but we know that those of us here and within our community have huge hearts. Hearts that go out right now to those in the affected communities whose lives may be forever changed by this act of nature. We sincerely hope that this donation, however small or large, can help at least one family, or even one person, make it through this disaster.
Why the Houston Food Bank?
For individuals who already struggle to provide for their family’s basic needs, the flooding is even more catastrophic. The Houston Food Bank will provide food and supplies in the short term and for many months to come to residents in southeast Texas who will struggle to rebuild their lives.
The Houston Food Bank also receives a score of 100/100 on the Charity Navigator website, earning perfect marks on its financial, accountability and transparency scores. This gives us a great sense of security believing that our donation will make its way to those in need.
Do I need to buy Radicool to help out?
Absolutely not. If you would prefer donating directly then please do that. There are many well known organizations helping out, like the Red Cross, Salvation Army and United Way as well as other local organizations, such as Houston SPCA, Houston Humane Society, Houston Food Bank, Food Bank of Corpus Christi, or San Antonio Humane Society. We just want you to know that if you do buy with us this coming month, that 10% of your purchase price will be going to help out.
I sincerely hope that other companies can find it within their means to make a similar commitment.
Thank you for supporting us and for supporting this effort.
President - Radicool UV Beachwear
