Using his clothing line, Hi My Name Is Mark, Hoppus encourages all to send new- to relatively-new clothes, rather than cash, to Harvey victims. The line is also giving away prizes for those participating and spreading the word using the hashtags #icleanedoutmyclosetforhouston and #HMNIMhouston.

This is a great way to get involved and help those in need right now. Repost and Tag #icleanedoutmyclosetforhouston and #HMNIMhouston we'll be randomly giving away some gifts to those who spread the word.

As for Fall Out Boy, they just announced that all proceeds from their November 7 show at Houston’s Toyota Center will benefit Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. Through the Fall Out Boy Fund, the band will make monetary donations which will serve multiple local organizations in their mission of helping Harvey  victims. 

You can help the victims of the storm too. The American Red Cross is accepting donations. Text the word HARVEY to 90999 to make a $10 donation. You can also visit redcross.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS to make a donation.
