All these disasters this year .  It's insane.  I'm just curious if a lot of you guys donated.  I didn't donate much but I did donate.  After Houston I donated 20 bucks to the Red Cross by texting 90999.   Then after the Puerto Rico disaster I donated to Red Cross again 10 bucks and also to a gofundme page setup by JLo and Marc Anthony

Hopefully that is it for disasters this year.

I donated to help with he wildfires. Not sure where the money goes really. But I felt like I helped.

I know these foundations we donate to take a lot off the top.  There are advertising and administrative costs that are taken out of our donations.  But as long as I am making any kind of difference, I feel better about myself as a person.  I at least tried to help. I have a lot of Puerto Rican friends and I just had to do it.  They still have a long way to go.

Texas handled that disaster better than any other state could have. Especially any coastal state.

A bit of a bizarre comment to say the least...
