Country singer Brad Paisley has just launched a GoFundMe account to help flood victims in his home state of West Virginia.
Paisley made the announcement on Facebook, writing, "On June 23rd, my home state of West Virginia experienced tremendous flooding that killed over 20 people and destroyed entire small towns. Join me in pitching in to help.”
He said in a separate statement, "Now that the waters are receding it’s time to pitch in and help in any way we can. One of the best ways I have found that hopefully will raise the largest amount of money the quickest and get it to the people in need the fastest is through GoFundMe. I have set a goal of $1 million -- this is doable and only a small portion of what is needed. Join me as we help West Virginians together.”
Brad has made an initial donation of $100,000. To donate to the cause, visit GoFundMe.com!
