Essential Workers
Help us continue to show our gratitude to our Front-line Heroes!
As the world continues to battle COVID-19 and contain its spread, there are two stories playing out before our eyes. On one hand, we can choose to see negativity – a strained healthcare system, an uncertain economic outlook, and anxiety over when our lives will return to normal, if ever. It’s easy to dwell in this negativity. It’s all around us.

But there’s another more important story that will bring the world together and carry us through this crisis – and that is gratitude. We’re continuing to see an outpouring of appreciation and goodwill for heroes on the front-lines against COVID-19. For putting the health of others above all else. For providing care and compassion in these unprecedented times. For being a light in the face of uncertainty.

A HUGE THANK YOU to Burleigh Chiropractic, Charlie's Plumbing and Insurance for All Ages for your generous donations!

In Texas, small businesses are our moms, our uncles, our friends. They're family, and they're trying to get back on their feet again. We can help. Let's Stand Tall For Small. Our small businesses are trying to make it, but they won't unless we make it our collective responsibility to wear a mask. #SBETogether
