Hurricane Harvey relief efforts are popping up all around. Here are two set for Wednesday. If you know of anything else, please leave a comment or send me an email.

-Diamond Brand and Frugal Backpacker on Wednesday is donating 10 percent of sales from all three store locations to the Houston Food Bank and the Houston Humane Society, according to a press release. Customers will also have the option of donating directly to these organizations at checkout.
