Indies Helping Houston

In this post, I shared that on Wednesday, I'll participate in a complimentary webinar where you can enjoy rare entrepreneurial training simply by making a donation to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. Be sure to sign up for that! Today, in this post, I am sharing some of the love that our IBN members are showering on Houston.

There are some great opportunities to kill two birds with one stone here by simultaneously helping Houston recover and snapping up some of the handmade products you love.
