This site, Irma's List is a grass roots site created in 2017 after a Texas natural disaster, for the sole purpose of providing a platform for victims to ask for help, and good Samaritans to respond. The current system set in place has been inundated by the amount of donations, and number of volunteers they have to process via background checks etc. before those people are allowed to help victims. During these desperate times, seeks to connect those who need immediate help with the people who are closest and best able to provide the help they need, via use of whatever assets necessary including direct assistance or redirecting the person to agencies that can help.

If you are stranded and in need of help, please call 911 first, then post a message here and provide any updates in REAL TIME as your rescue progresses (I.e. If you have made telephone contact with the rescuer who is 20 minutes away, leave a comment or post letting everyone know.) When your rescue is complete, please leave a thank you message and or remove your post. PLEASE, no spam, and please use this site as it is intended to be used: to save lives of people who are otherwise unable to get help, and to improve the supply chain and communication bottleneck. Any humanitarian gridlock is costing people their lives. Let's take this matter into our own hands online!
