This is a husband and wife duo that were simply looking of a way to help the Victims of Hurricane Harvey. They made a Facebook announcement that they wanted to fill a truck and send it to Texas! The response was overwhelming. Over the course of 5 days people came from all over to join the effort. They ended up sending 5 semi Trucks to Houston Texas and collected over $43,000 in gift card donations. They created a team from the volunteers and named themselves "Waves Of Hope USA". The WOH team flew to Rockport, Texas (a beach town that was being forgotten) and hand delivered the gift cards directly to the people. They documented the entire experience and are working on a documentary with a film producer. Since then, they realize there are other ways they can help and are looking forward to creating more community driven events where anybody can participate by donating money or time or ability... They say we all have something to give and we are all capable of contributing in amazing and creative ways.
WOH is currently planning a Toy Drive event at St. Mary of the Isle to bring toys and gift cards to the families devastated by the California Wild fires. CTK PHOTOS is Christina Kramer's Photography company that will sponsor children's holiday portraits to the community free of charge. However, a toy or gift card donation would be a wonderful way to give to a family in need.
Our team gathers together to create events that bring a community together to organize, collect, sort and load items needed following a natural disaster. We then go to the destination site to hand deliver monetary donations in the form of gift cards directly into the hands that need them. Here we are delivering cleaning supplies to a tent city in Rockport, Texas where people were living for weeks following Hurricane Harvey. Check out the Documentary we are creating to bring awareness to the world about what happens after the first responders have moved on. People have their basic needs met but are far from being whole. That's where WOH comes in to lend a helping hand
