Together in Hope

Together in Hope envisions a world where children don't go hungry, where children can go to school, where parents can afford to give their children a future and where children don't die of curable illnesses. Together in Hope believes that if we all work together, together in hope that we can make this world a reality and give those living in poverty a future with hope.

Together in Hope works with some of the world's poorest communities living in the Philippines, El Salvador and Ethiopia who have been forgotten by international development organizations. We work with these communities to help them break the cycle of poverty and give them a future with hope.

Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund
August 28, 2017 - April 30, 2018
 Houston, Texas

I have never seen flooding and devastation like this in the 27 years I have lived in Houston.  I have never seen flooding and devastation like this in the United States in the 7 years I served as the Director of the Center for Missional Excellence of the Texas Annual Conference in charge of disaster response or in the previous years when I worked with disaster response as a local pastor. As the founder and director of Together in Hope, we have helped with responses to catastrophic floods in the Philippines.  We know that even with the excellent response of large aid organizations, needs remain unmet as some people fall through the cracks or have needs that those organizations cannot meet.  That is where local churches, and other non-profit organizations can make a tremendous difference.  Tropical Storm Harvey caused catestrophic flooding in the greater Houston area and beyond and we need your help in responding . It's going to take all of us working together in hope to restore lives and communities here.  We can't do it without you.  Over the next 30 days, I commit to walking 500 miles throughout storm devastated Houston.  I will record my progress for you on Facebook and Instagram.  You can follow me on Instagram as Diane McGehee and on my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/diane.mcgehee.7   I can't walk 500 miles in 30 days by myself - I need you to join me and walk, run, or set up another exercise challenge; build a team and help us. You can do something as simple as take a group hike in solidarity with Harvey victims and use that to raise money. 

With your help, we are seeking to raise $250,000 to help with relief and recovery.  Every penny we recieve will go to help those in need.  As we utilize the funds, I will keep you updated so that you can let those who give to your team know the difference they are making.  Will you join me?  To join the team, click on the "Join Team" bottun to the bottom left of this screen and follow the prompts.  Then, send your fundraising page link out to your entire email, Facebook, Instagram, and other networks.  Or you can donate to my page.   BUT PLEASE HELP.  Working together in hope, we can do this.
