Texans and Louisianans are dealing with significant hardships as a result of this storm.With thousands of residents still without power since the hurricane hit, many in Houston and surrounding areas are without electricity for lights or power sources to charge their cell phone.

Carolyn Wright, founder of AWOW said, "Thoughts of not being able to speak with my loved ones and the fear of losing contact with them was mind-boggling during this ordeal.” Throughout the disaster she was on the phone with family for countless hours keeping them informed and up-to date with the news. “Mobile devices have become very important tools these days and being able to charge them is crucial. Seeing thousands of people without power sources and knowing many will be without for months ahead compelled me to act." Wright said.
