Last week, Southern Louisiana experienced record-breaking rainfall, and the floods have tragically displaced over 30,000 people from their homes. Families have had to leave everything they own behind, seeking safety and shelter. Though New Orleans was spared by this flooding, our city is all too familiar with the heartbreak.
We are all feeling the need to help with the recovery process. Lots of New Orleans artists and makers are currently selling products that, in turn, provide relief for our neighbors in need. Give a little, get a little – and be sure to pass the info along!
