Hey everyone,

My name is Chamillionaire. I created a Youcaring campaign to help provide assistance for a lot of families that have been severely impacted by all of the devastation that Hurricane Harvey has caused. I am a musician, but I am also a Houston native and I am completely heartbroken after witnessing what this flooding has done to disrupt the lives of so many hard working families and people.

Just like so many other people out there, I don't want to sit on the sidelines, I want to do the most that I can to help. I will be investing a lot of my own personal time and money to help, but there are so many people impacted by the flooding that I can't help feeling like I need to try my best to do more. There are homes that are completely damaged, cars that are no longer drivable, shortages of food and water supplies, and families that have lost loved ones as a result of this unfortunate hurricane and flooding. After visiting a lot of these communities in person and seeing the devastation first-hand, I quickly realized that I need to make a stronger effort to do what I can to help many of the people that I feel still aren't receiving the assistance they need.
 

I want to be as transparent as I can possibly be throughout the entirety of this campaign. I know a lot of people out there have charitable hearts, but I also understand why a lot of people are skeptical about who to trust with their donations. I'm sure there are plenty of other campaigns that will do great things for the people who have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey, but I want to focus on a lot of the families and areas that I feel have been extremely overlooked. Just to be clear, this is what I can promise:
 
  • Every penny, nickel, dime, quarter, and dollar bill donated to this campaign will go towards directly helping as many families as I can.
  • Not one cent of this fund raise will be spent on administrative costs or profit for me or anyone involved in helping. I will be personally paying any legal fees, transportation, administrative costs, or work for hire pay completely out of pocket.
  • I will be as transparent as I can about where the donation funds went, which families your donations helped, and how the donations are being distributed.
  • As a show of good faith, I have personally contributed the first donation of $25,000 to cover any out of pocket costs. This way you can be sure that your full donation will go to helping out a family in need. I have personally invested my own money to help with Harvey Relief before this campaign and I will continue to make personal donations on top of the campaign. I have never been one to announce charitable donations, but I just have decided to do it this way to preserve the spirit of transparency.

Thank you to all of the compassionate people across the world who have been asking me to give them an address to send physical donations to help support the people who were impacted by the flooding. I am proud to announce that I have partnered with Mattress Mack & Gallery Furniture in Houston and they will be handling all of the physical items and clothing donations.

If you are from the city of Houston, you are more than likely already aware of all the philanthropic work they have been doing for our community for decades. I am thankful that they have been generous enough to handle all of the physical donations because they have the resources to properly assist with distribution, years and years of experience in giving back to our community, and the trust of so many of us who call Houston our home.
