Like most Houstonians, Steven Kaufman was intensely moved by the widespread devastation that Hurricane Ike sprayed across Houston in 2008. Kaufman and friend Juan Cuevas set out to come up with a way to raise money, give ALL OF IT to families who suffered a tragedy, and show the donors a video of the gift delivery so they could see how their money made a difference.
