Bethenny Frankel has helped so many people across the continental United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Mexico, the Caribbean Islands, and beyond through her disaster relief effort. Now as Hurricane Florence approaches the United States with potentially catastrophic effects for the Carolinas, The Real Housewives of New York City humanitarian is getting ready to see what she can do to continue to help those in need.

In response to one fan’s praise of her relief work in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria last year, Bethenny shared that she’s waiting to see how she and her B Strong charity organization can help those who will be affected by Hurricane Florence. “I’m bracing myself to see where #bstrong can help if this is what they’re saying,” she tweeted Wednesday. “I think action trumps talk, no pun intended. At least Maria & Harvey taught people that the threat is real. These storms are ruthless.”

Bethenny later tweeted that they are “getting prepared” as Hurricane Florence looms. “Our hurricane relief teams are already mobilizing support as we speak FYI. Every storm has specific needs. Will keep you updated,” Bethenny shared with her fans. “Info on donating will come soon also. Xoxo Pray.”

Bethenny quickly mobilized to help with the hurricane relief effort after Hurricane Harvey devastated Houston last year. She then helped those impacted by a deadly earthquake in Mexico before turning her attention to Puerto Rico, as well as the U.S. Virgin Islands and neighboring territories following Hurricane Maria. Bethenny shared on Twitter in October 2017 that the initiative had raised “well over a million in planes, cash & donations.”

Fans followed Bethenny on one of her relief missions to Puerto Rico in Season 10 of RHONY. She brought fellow New York Housewife Dorinda Medley along for the journey, and she was deeply moved by the experience (clip above). Housewives on both coasts, from Tinsley Mortimer to Ramona Singer to Carole Radziwill to Lisa Rinna, also donated to Bethenny’s disaster relief efforts.
