I never took Senator Ted Cruz’s advice – before today. He urged corporations to help with Texas relief efforts (in part because he voted against a Hurricane Sandy relief bill). While I believe the Federal Government should help out in disasters of this size, it’s also important during these time to be generous corporate citizens.
Having lived through Hurricane Sandy and a 7-day power outage, I know a bit of what these folks are going through but I didn’t have to deal with 6-feet of water in my house.
