It’s always inspiring to see how the Web can make an impact on real world events and needs. The recent wildfires in Texas have hit very close to home for the (Houston headquartered) Schipul team. Thousands are now homeless with fires still raging across our dry state.
We live in a beautiful state with even more beautiful people – seeing the destruction and pain of our fellow Texans is difficult to say the least. Let’s continue our support to these great communities!
Help support Texas wildfire victims
Watching the wildfire support Tweets and reading about Facebook groups dedicated to helping folks on the fiery ground is only confirmation of what a great connective tool the Web can be.

The Schipul office is collecting items (clothing, food, household goods, toys, garbage bags, gloves, toiletries, gift cards) for families affected by the Central Texas wildfire – dropping them off on Wednesday, September 13th to Bastrop. Join event on Facebook.
