I founded Never Settle Inc. as a non-profit nearly 10 years ago from my college dorm. In that time, I've come to notice more and more celebrities, athletes, and innovators talking about "not settling" and even using "never settle" as a mantra of their own. Even major brands like T-Mobile, OnePlus, and Hennessy have jumped on the Never Settle bandwagon.

Hurricane Harvey made landfall over Texas on August 25th 2017. It was quickly labeled a Category 4 hurricane due to high winds (up to 150 mph) and 2-4 feet of rain. Harvey has caused widespread damage and flooding to communities across Texas and Louisiana. Hurricane Harvey affected many communities including Corpus Christi, Houston, Port Mansfield, Brownsville, Port O’Connor, Victoria, Galveston, Matagorda, Rockport, High Island, and Freeport. Houston was one of the hardest hit by the storm. More than 50 inches of rain fell onto Houston over four days, turning one of the largest cities in the USA into a sea of muddy brown water. Even as the rain and wind moves on, the region continues to suffer consequences of the destruction and loss of life.
