In this time of unprecedented weather events like Harvey and Irma, our thoughts remain with all those affected by these storms as we admire their great #RESILIENCE and #STRENGTH.
Stout Magazine has gathered thoughts on resilience and actions we can take for the recovery from some #Stout Americans- including five former presidents. We hope you will step up with us to help others #STAYSTRONG for the long road ahead.

Five Former Presidents, One Good Cause – We are #StrongerTogether
“Hurricane Harvey brought terrible devastation – but it also brought out the best in humanity. As former Presidents, we wanted to come together and join our fellow citizens in supporting Houston and the communities along the Gulf Coast as they rebuild. Please give whatever you can. Every cent donated through the One America Appeal will help the victims recover. ”
– Former presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter

“Being based in Texas, nearly all of our HomeAway employee family is either related to or knows someone affected by Hurricane Harvey,” said Bill Furlong, HomeAway Vice President, North America. “We are moved by those who are dedicating themselves to help our fellow Texans, especially those opening their doors.”
