    Rugby Relief to support relief efforts for Hurricane Harvey

    Hi All - Many of you know that I'm from the States, and more specifically Texas. My hometown of Houston has been devastated this week by Hurricane Harvey. Record flooding has hit the area since last Friday. My parents were lucky and only had 8 cm in their house. An Aussie mate did the conversion and said the total rain fall in the area was the volume of 70 Sydney Harbors in about 3-4 days.

    My ex-coach from Texas is associated with a group called Rugby Relief (www.rugbyrelief.org). It a consortium of volunteers from Texas and Louisiana Rugby clubs that help out during natural disasters. If you are able to assist, donating to their GoFundMe is the easiest method for donations at https://www.gofundme.com/rugbyrelief

    The funds will be used for tools, protective gear, food, and water for volunteers that are assisting with disaster relief in Houston and the surrounding areas.

    I will be heading back next week to try to help out. Please share this with your local rugby clubs as well. Thanks in advance for your donations, thoughts and prayers.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Thanks to all that have contributed and spread the word. I will be heading down late next week to help out. I'll post some pictures when I can.

    Rugby Relief posted this on the Neddies Juniors Facebook page "Thank you so much for your help in spreading the word and donating! We greatly appreciate the international support!"
