California girl makes jewelry to benefit Harvey victims

-
House after house in Houston right now has debris outside, all after affects of Hurricane Harvey.

Savannah Wells and her dad Jeremy flew in from Los Angeles with friends, to help family that had a house flood near Dairy Ashford and Memorial.

"Even out there 2,000 miles away, most of these people don't know people in Houston but their hearts are going out to everybody here as well", says Jeremy Wells.

Savannah decided she could make a difference too, one pair of earrings and pliers at a time. Creating wonderful sea glass works of art and selling them to benefit those impacted by Harvey.
 
 "We started building it from there and my mom started helping me and we organized after school kind of like assemblies in the art room and lots of kinds came over and helped", says Savannah Wells.
 
The pair also spent their day helping demolish their cousins home. Matt AND Allison Easton say they had about six feet of water in their house.

"We all got out safely that's the important thing, got out with three kids, got out with the dog, rescued some of the pets so we have what is most important", says Matt Easton.

When they heard what Savannah was doing, it was a proud moment. 
"I love it, it's such a neat thing to be able to have a kid to be able to make a huge impact on society and provide so much help for the people here", says Allison Easton.
 
The ten year old stared selling the jewelry at an art walk in their hometown with the help of friends and classmates and have now sold hundreds of pieces.

"We were excited at $300 dollars at the art walk and then our church The Barn Church back in Ventura matched several thousand of that, so she is somewhere north of $10,000 dollars at this point", says Jeremy Wells.


Proceeds will go to Bayou City Fellowship and benefit those affected by Harvey.
