For the month of September, we're donating 50% of our profits to The United Way of Houston's Relief Fund to help with the Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts.
Hurricane Harvey has become one of the most devastating hurricanes to make landfall on US soil. At the time of this writing, Hurricane Harvey has claimed 31 lives, displaced over 30,000 people, and will cost an estimated $190 billion to overcome its destruction.
At Dchlorin8, we pride ourselves on our commitment to our community, which is why we couldn't stand by as the great people of Texas experienced one of the most destructive natural disasters in US history. So, during the entire month of September, for every bottle of Dchlorin8 that we sell, we'll donate 50% of the profits to The United Way of Houston's Relief Fund.
Why did we choose The United Way of Houston?
We chose The United Way of Houston because we want to ensure that the money we donate goes directly to the people who need it. After doing our research, we felt that The United Way of Houston would give us the best chance to do so. According to their website:

How is the money donated to the United Way of Houston used?
According to their website, the money from donations will be allocated in the following ways:
United Way’s first priority will be safety, shelter and basic needs, like food. Once the community is stabilized, United Way will focus on long-term recovery efforts.
