Hurricane Harvey was one of a series of hurricanes to lap viciously at the southern parts of the United States, the Caribbean and parts of Central America.
Many homes and livelihoods have been destroyed. But many are banding together now, to rebuild and face their adversity.
The Austin Psychedelic Society have setup a fund to raise money for relief efforts. We recently chatted to them.
Tell us briefly about what the Austin Psychedelic Society has been up to:
The Texas Psychedelic Collective’s focus is on the science and expansion of natural therapies and medicines to enhance the mind and body. We currently have societies in Austin, Dallas, and Houston.
We plan to create space for individuals throughout Texas to discuss various aspects of the psychedelic experience. Specifically, we aim to provide individuals a platform to discuss how these experiences have contributed to transformations in their personal and professional lives.
How will you be using the relief fund?
Natural disasters make a global impact, many people do not realize this — thank you for seeing the whole picture (perfect example of the psychedelic effects of mind expansion). All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts for Hurricane Harvey. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet survivors’ immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations in the Gulf Coast.
