This little Pilates puppy, Metta, had a wonderful birthday weekend! He had a doggie party with his BESTest (brand new friends) at the dog park! 🐶 His daddy made him grilled chicken for lunch! He was gifted a whole new bag of stuffed bees 🐝 for chasing and chewing (his favorite)! He took a nap in the ☀️ on the hammock with his mommy.

This is what Simon & I have been present to since he, Max and I decided to travel to Houston to assist in relief efforts.
We decided to do this one week ago today, we didn't know what we were getting ourselves into, we just knew we had to go.
At 1AM Wednesday we booked our tickets.
At 10AM my friend and client @drmichellek posts on IG that we were going and she was collecting supplies- by 2PM her office was filled with donations of baby food and supplies.
At 3:30 the amazing team at Zen Fitness and friends, Christian @madebymuscle, Megan St. James, @getwhatfeelsgood
Luis Cazares and Steff Sykes were in full force to organize the transporting of over 200lbs of baby food and supplies, and load it into 3 large suitcases so I and these supplies could depart for LAX by 4:30. Mission accomplished! 👏🏻 14 hours after we booked our tickets we were flying to Austin (Houston airport was still closed). ✈️ Once in Austin we slept for a few hours at an airport hotel, and it was here that we witnessed our first Houston refugees, mostly young families with children.
Worry stained their eyes.
Tears stung ours.
Off we went to buy more supplies with the money we had raised from YOU- our friends and family! All in all YOU raised $2000 and over 400lbs of physical donations. We promised you that your contributions would go directly into the hands of people that needed them. We saw this with our own eyes, everything we brought was utilized in less then a day. The photos below are examples of what we bought, whether it was $500 or $5 YOU made a difference in someone's life.

Love you guys❤️
I had the privilege of meeting this little rescue pup yesterday! She is a VERY lucky little 🐶 after her original owners left or lost her, a husband & wife were carrying their belongings, their 2 year old dog and their toddler through the waist high water when the hubby heard crying. He swam off and found this lucky little puppy! They have named her Storm!
Now get this part 2 to the story!
In addition to their 2yr old dog, they also had a Chihuahua puppy that was killed 2 weeks ago, their other dog has been depressed and barely eating since its death.
Since they found Storm their other dog has been eating again and is bonding with Storm. We all need a friend! #friendship#beautiful#rescuepup#rescuedog#houston#hurricaneharvey#love#storiesOfLOVE
We are now assisting in the section with the displaced families, the "guests"💗 I'm not allowed to take photos in here, out of the respect and privacy of the families.
There are 3 sections;
1 for families with kids, 1 for adults without children,
1 for adults with animals.
Such LOVE, COMPASSION & GRACE present.
Yesterday a little girl celebrated her 5th birthday here- she was showered with gifts and love from everyone! #Beautiful#healhouston#hurricaneharvey#unite#houston#love#heal#beofService#thankYOU
The amount of items being provided, and that are also being handed out to people is mind blowing. Keep in your mind what these videos show is only half of what was there at 9AM this morning (I shot these videos at 6PM)
They are going through supplies so quickly.
40,000 homes have been lost!!! It is hard to be with this, and yet we must be.
We must do what we can, we must be there for our neighbors no matter what. No matter the differences. This is what unites, this is what will heal us a country. #healhouston#houston#unite#takecareofeachother#love#hurricaneharvey
Our rental car is stuffed to the max...we can barely fit @max.swart in at this point!!! Thank you all for your contributions, friends!! More love to come! Houston we are heading to you...230 miles til touchdown!
Hi everyone! Juliet, Simon and all of us here at JKZen Fitness wanted to personally thank all of you for your incredibly generous contributions so far for Houston! Juliet and Simon are about to take off on their flight shortly to touch down and get started with assisting in any way they can. We have received 6 large suitcases full of items and we are so humbled to see all of us being able to unite together within such a time of need. If anyone else would like to contribute to this cause I will have Juliet's venmo account listed below so that you may contribute directly to the cause. Juliet and Simon will be heading out to go shopping for supplies early tomorrow morning. Also, there will not be a tax receipt with your contribution, but we can 100% guarantee that your money will go directly to the supplies needed and directly into the hands of the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Please feel free to contribute in any way you feel comfortable. Juliet's venmo account is: Juliet-kaska-1 ✨❤️✨❤️🌻🦋 thank you all so much again!! This community is so appreciated.

Hey everyone! With all the devastation happening in Texas right now, Simon and I decided to fly down and give our support and to help as much as we can. We are gathering items for donation to bring with us including toiletries, coloring books, crayons and any kids' items that aren't electric or need batteries. I will be at the studio until 4pm today if anyone would like to drop off their donation before we leave, no item is too small! #HelpHealHouston
