Thanks to those who have donated towards our Hurricane Harvey fundraiser, we were able to help the Houston Police Department pass out 200 #hoUStonstrong teddy bears to some amazing kids in Houston, Texas. The participation and impact has exceeded all expectations; feel free to read more on the story from The Varnett School.
