Natural disasters, as their name implies, can’t be stopped, and occur naturally on a semi-regular basis. While they can be predicted to a certain degree, it’s difficult to predict the paths of some expected storms, namely hurricanes.
This inability to predict where natural disasters will actually strike makes it just about impossible to safeguard areas of the world that end up getting hit the hardest by such storms, earthquakes, and other detrimental phenomena refereed by Mother Nature.
As everyone with eyes or ears knows by now, Hurricane Harvey hit the United States mainland about six months ago. Once the end of the natural disaster passed, some areas of Houston – Houston was hit harder than anywhere else in the entire United States, along with most regions of Southeastern and Eastern Texas, as well as parts of Louisiana – were left standing in multiple feet of water.
Fortunately for those affected by Hurricane Harvey, many people showed support and reached out to help in just about every feasible fashion that was reasonably possible.

So, who helped, and how?
Millions Of People Donated And Volunteered Their Time, But Some Business Entities Were Proven To Help More Than Others
Nabors Industries was one of the business entities that helped more than others. Rather than getting in the way of volunteer’s building efforts, Nabors Industries and Tony Petrello first researched the best ways to provide aid, and stuck to the script, rather than deviating from such plans in the name of taking actions that wouldn’t actually lend themselves to contributing positively to areas struck by Hurricane Harvey.
CEO Tony Petrello told the company that he, personally, would be contributing a dollar amount to local charities and related entities that matched the total dollar value of what all employees donated.
You Wouldn’t Believe How Much Money Nabors Industries Managed To Save – Oh, And How Much Tony Petrello Managed To Help
As time has proven thus far, Mr. Tony Petrello helped the people of Houston that were affected by such discourse of natural proportions through providing local, reputable community service organizations with the $173,622 – or parts of it, as it was delegated to multiple organizations throughout the area to eventually be dished out in the form of financial aid – employees had raised all on their own, with no help from any outside sources whatsoever, and the equal $173,622 match made by Tony Petrello.
Anthony Petrello has an extensive profile that always focuses on the idea of helping other people. He graduated from Yale and Harvard with an MD, BS and JD. He worked for a law firm as a lawyer before he came to Nabors, and he is a director at a Texas Children’s Hospital.
