Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo House Hurricane Harvey Refugees, Ask Fans For Support

by at . Comments

Hurricane Harvey brought heavy rains and deadly flooding to Texas last week, and Lone Star State residents are doing their part to help.

That includes Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo, who live a long way from the historic storm's path, but have taken in those affected by it.

The couple kept this quiet at first, but Jeremy did respond publicly to a fan on Twitter who asked if he and his wife were okay.

Vuolo responded to the concerned follower:

"We are. Laredo wasn't affected. We've housed some refugees, though, and are planning a trip North next week. Thanks for checking in!"

Jinger, who moved away from her large family in Arkansas, now lives in South Texas, hundreds of miles from where Harvey struck.

In addition to housing displaced Texans himself, Vuolo has been re-tweeting posts from an organization whose mission is exactly that.

Thirsty Ground is a "Christian non-profit dedicated to providing relief for weary bodies and thirsty souls in disaster-stricken areas."

Jeremy also said that some of the couple's friends evacuated Corpus Christi, on the Texas coast, and are now staying in Laredo.

It's nice to see the pastor doing his part, and some news about the Duggar family that doesn't border on controversial for once.

Even Jinger, one of the most beloved and least polarizing members of the giant TLC crew, frequently makes headlines online.

Especially lately, given her fashion "rebellion."

Photos of Jinger Duggar in short sleeves, jeans, sneakers, shorts and everything else have sent fans into a frenzy so far in 2017.

A girl wearing tight pants may not seem like a big deal, but this is the Duggar family ... wear pants aren't typically allowed. At all.

Jessa, Jinger, Jill and Jana, the oldest four Duggar girls, discussed the famous family's modest dress code in their 2014 memoir.

"We do not dress modestly because we are ashamed of the body God has given us; quite the contrary," the Duggar girls wrote.

"We realize that our body is a special gift from God and that He intends for it to be shared only with our future husband."

"We always avoid low-cut, cleavage-showing, gaping, or bare-shouldered tops; and when needed, we wear an undershirt."

"We try to always cover the top of our shirt with our hand when we bend over. We don't want to play the peekaboo game."

No thoughts of hanky panky, guys. Sorry.

Don't get us wrong, Jinger still dresses quite modestly. (You'll have to check out Amy Duggar in a bikini if you want a true rebel.)

The fact that Jeremy encourages her to dress how she pleases without abiding by the strictest of "codes" is a major departure, though.

Jessa would never be caught dead in some of these outfits, which tells you a lot; Jim Bob and Jeremy clearly disagree on this topic.

Jinger has also charted her own course in another, unexpected way ... by not getting pregnant after being married almost a year.

Again, it's just a year. Not exactly a lifetime, but with Joy-Anna expecting after three months of marriage, well, it's the Duggars.

All in all, Jinger continues to fascinate her adoring fans - and given her humanitarian efforts this week, they will love her even more.
