The Gaines couple is also people of heart. In 2017, when Category 4 storm Harvey ripped through Texas, uprooting families from their homes and causing more destruction, they designed a “Texas Forever” T-Shirt and donated 100% profits toward the homes and lives that had been wrecked.

Chip Gaines also shaved his head to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Even before Chip and Joanna Gaines became television personalities, they were successful entrepreneurs and were widely popular in their locality.  Two people who share similar interests have been developing their career in various ways over the years.

Though they are not coming back to the TV show, they still intend to carry on their other business ventures. With a new restaurant that’s yet to be opened, we can assume that the couple still has plans to expand more and we wish them the best.
