“The Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Rosary to such an extent that there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal or above all spiritual, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families…that cannot be solved by the Rosary. There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary.”
-Sister Lucia dos Santos, Fatima seer

When Jim McIngvale woke up on Sunday morning, his home was filled with about two to three feet of floodwater. Once he was able to get out, the popular furniture store owner — better known as “Mattress Mack” — headed to work and saw the devastating damage and impact that Hurricane Harvey already had on Houston.

McIngvale said the community has always supported him in the toughest of times. In 2009, someone lit his warehouse on fire that resulted in millions of dollars’ worth of damage.

He said supporting Houstonians during this tragic time is his way of giving back. Currently, there are hundreds of adults and children at two of his stores.

McIngvale said he is providing free breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the evacuees.

“I was raised as a Catholic. I continued my Catholic faith throughout my life, trying to do the right thing and hopefully, you do the right thing and help people along the way,” McIngvale said. “Sitting in a perfectly normal house one day and then, 10 minutes later you’ve got three feet of water in it. So, it’s very stressful and we’re trying to help them out because they’ve done so much for us over the years,” McIngvale said.

He’s also, largely known for his philanthropy. He’s given to numerous charities. For more than 20 years, he’s donated rooms full of furniture to families in need for Christmas.

McIngvale has provided shelter to people once before. He helped hundreds of evacuees who fled New Orleans from Hurricane Katrina.

Currently there is a petition to make August 26 “Mattress Mack Day” in Houston which already has more than 100,000 signatures! After reaching its goal of 150,000 signatures the petition will be passed along to the City of Houston.

We are devastated by the news of flooding along the Texas coast. So many are left homeless and trapped, and the rains continue to come. We are making this shirt available in partnership with @catholiccharities and @catholictshirtclub and THE PROCEEDS OF THIS TSHIRT WILL BENEFIT THE VICTIMS OF HURRICANE HARVEY.
We will present your donation to Catholic Charities Houston so they can use the funds to help people with things like temporary housing, food, water, and permanent housing after this all settles down. Get them for the whole family!
Thank you for your generosity!

Helicopters plucked desperate flood victims from rooftops Sunday while boats and trucks swept hundreds more residents to safety as remnants of Hurricane Harvey drove punishing rains and flooding deeper into Texas.
Gov. @governorabbott said more than a thousand state emergency personnel were aiding local authorities in water rescues. The Coast Guard, which said it had received more than 300 requests for search and rescues, had five helicopters conducting rescues in Houston, with more choppers coming in from New Orleans.
Over 1,000+ people have been
rescued from the catastrophic floods, thousands more are waiting to be rescued, families are losing everything they own, pray for Texas!
