The news of their kindness comes after the state has seen one of the worst winter periods in decades.

Over 4 million people have been left without electricity, heating, and hot water. And even those who were lucky to have power in their homes saw a disastrous outcome as they were slapped with extortionate bills.

And even with people coming to help out...

Things are still looking pretty bad in the area.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been out on the frontline, trying to help as many people as she can.

The Democratic rep managed to raise a whopping 5 million dollars for the people of Texas, in order to help those who need it the most.

Ocasio-Cortez was using Act Blue, a fundraising tool, that can help her build an email list as she receives donations.

On Friday night, she even decided to fly over to the state to join fellow Democrat, Sylvia Garcia, to help distribute food and other supplies to those who needed it the most.

President Joe Biden has now declared a state of emergency in Texas.

Despite how dire things have become, the Senator of Texas, Ted Cruz, decided to fly himself, as well as his family, out to Mexico to enjoy the sun while the citizens of his state continued to suffer.

​He has been facing criticism from a lot of people, including members of his own party.

After the backlash, he flew back and has miraculously joined AOC and other politicians out on the frontline. Maybe that would have been commended more if he hadn't flown to Mexico during a natural disaster.

But regardless, at least he's finally out there doing his job.

Greg Abbott, the Governor of Texas, has also found himself in some hot water after calling for several meetings about the issue, but not actually implementing enough action to help resolve the problem.

And because of this attitude from the leaders of the state, Texans have been suffering incredibly.

The current weather conditions are something that we haven't seen in decades.

And it's not just that one state. Other southern states have also been left without electricity and running water...

With so many people and their families being forced into unbearable living situations.

According to The Guardian, professionals have noted that the heating of the arctic may be to blame for these crazy changes in the weather down south...

Especially for the snowstorms that have been brutally hitting the area.

They explained the situation:

"[Experts claim] there is evidence that the rapid heating of the Arctic can help push frigid air from the north pole much further south, possibly to the US-Mexico border."

Things have gotten so bad in the last few weeks that people have been forced to evacuate their homes...

And due to the addition of heavy snowstorms and below-freezing temperatures, many states - in particular Texas - have been left completely powerless in most areas.

FYI, many southern states never see this kind of weather meaning that the majority of houses and buildings aren't equipped for below-freezing temperatures.

And not only that, but thirty deaths have been reported so far...

And as temperatures continue to fall, this number is expected to rise.

Many homes have been left for days without running water...

And people are having to melt the snow from their front yards in order to flush their toilets and wash their hands.

People have been taking to social media to share their new living situations during the unbearable temperatures...

Including Twitch streamer, Edwin Castro, who has been playing video games and streaming in the comfort of his car due to the power cuts.

This Twitter user shared this shocking photo of their fan...

That had literally frozen to the ceiling and had icicles dangling down from it.

And most recently, Genesis Women's Shelter and Support saw some pretty horrifying scenes.

The organization was left with burst pipes, fallen ceilings, and damaged furniture after the storm hit the building.

But thankfully, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry heard about it and decided to make a donation through their charity, the Archewell Foundation.

And of course, their generosity did not go unnoticed as the charity made a very special announcement that left fans warm inside.

​Here was the announcement made by the charity:

Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the current situation going on in the state and in the surrounding areas.
