My Uncle Ben & Aunt Kathy live in Houston. Hurricane Harvey hit & they thought they were going to be ok but they ended up with 4 feet of standing water in their house.They had to evacuate with just the clothes on their backs. Help me help them.

Many of you know me as the Hip Hop artist Infinite Skillz. Most of my family just calls me Jeremy. But this is not a crowdfunding effort for my next album or video shoot or touring effort. In fact, this really isn't about me. This is about my Uncle Ben and Aunt Kathy.
Uncle Ben & Aunt Kathy
My uncle and aunt live in Houston. Hurricane Harvey hit and they thought they were going to be ok, but they ended up with four feet of standing water in their house. They evacuated last minute to a shelter and literally just made it out with the clothes on their backs. They are gutting most of the house they had just remodeled because of mold and water damage form Hurricane Harvey. They've have had to find a place to live in the meantime.

Uncle Ben is an employee of the United States Postal Service where he has worked for more than three decades. He and Aunt Kathy have been gracious hosts for many family gatherings and it is heartbreaking to know that this simply won't be possible this holiday season.

I've struggled for months on how best to be of service to them. Part of my issue is I know a lot of people are struggling these days and I feel somewhat selfish asking for help knowing others are less fortunate. I reached out to my friends/fans for advice and they overwhelmingly said that I might be letting my own issues get in the way. Their advice was to simply ask for help and let others decide if the cause was worthy of their generosity. So that is what I'm doing.
Inside of the house after water damageAs you can see from the picture, they are going to need a lot of work done on the house before they can move back in. The money we raise will be given as a gift to him this Thanksgiving break to aid him in those efforts The rest of the family and I are pitching in to help and if you'd like to contribute, I'd be forever grateful.

Help us help Uncle Ben.
