Dynasty Sports Empire Fantasy Sports – Hurricane Harvey Relief Drive
As I sit here from the comfortable confines of my office with my family, central air and internet I can honestly say I couldn’t possibly imagine what life is like for those who reside (or used to) in the Hurricane Harvey affected areas of Houston , TX. We take so much for granted in life and i’m often reminded that there is still some good left to do in this world and I’d like to use whatever size platform I have to do that. So here goes…
My home state of New Jersey has seen it’s share of weather disasters, if you can recall. My family spent a week with no power or heat in October of 2012 when Superstorm Sandy hit. Emotionally and mentally, it was the hardest week of my life trying to keep life in order for my wife and kids. We spent hours helping other families to pass the time. Cleaned up trees, aluminum siding from houses and even had a community dinner where neighbors who never had a reason to talk, other than a friendly wave as we used to drive by, shared food and beverages of all kinds in an effort to remain upbeat and positive about the better days ahead after the storm.
Today, we here at Dynasty Sports Empire ask that you recall the little things that you have done that may have meant alot to someone else and help us support those in need who are trying to put together the pieces and struggling in and around the Houston area. With that in mind, we are organizing the DSE Gives Back Relief Drive to assist those in need. The funds are being raised via the sale of the tshirt we designed specifically for this relief drive. Pictured to the left, the shirt costs you $30.00 and payments can be made via PayPal. We are preordering the shirts now and need a final count on 9/13/17. Shirts will be shipped out from New Jersey once we receive them from the distributor on or around 10/1/17. All profits from sales will go directly to the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund based in New York. They have a specific fund set up for Houston residents and are one of the few organizations who are actually donating the proceeds properly.
To donate and pick up your own DSE Gives Back shirt please send an email to Conquer@dynastysportsempire.com or contact me on Twitter @LawrenceAMarino.
We hope you can find it in your heart to make the donation and support the efforts others are choosing to make as well. Thank you for taking the time to read this article and hopefully it falls into the hands of some amazing, charitable individuals who can spare the time and money to help.
