Like many of you, I’ve been following the news coming out of Texas with a heavy heart this week. The damage and destruction left behind in the wake of Hurricane Harvey is devastating, and my thoughts are with everyone affected.

We’ve also seen some incredible acts of kindness. From the rescue workers and volunteers who have gone without sleep for days, to Texans of all ages setting out in boats and kayaks to rescue their neighbors, to elected officials on the ground working together to put community ahead of political party, the best of America has shown up in Texas.

The Houston Chronicle has been collecting ways to help — it’s easier than ever to click and donate (I just did!).

Our friends and neighbors in Texas are counting on us, and I know we won’t let them down.
