BENEFITING: Baton Rouge Area Foundation Louisiana Flood Relief

EVENT DATE: Oct 16, 2016

THE STORY:

Did you know about this?

In mid-August, while the Summer Olympics in Rio dominated the news,  a record two-day rainfall occurred in South Louisiana that had a 0.1 percent chance of occurring in any year, a so-called "100-year event."  

It dumped more than two feet of rain on parts of East Baton Rouge, Livingston and St. Helena parishes in 48 hours, causing a catastrophe, life-changing flood. 13 people died. 

I'm a Baton Rouge native, and I grew up in one of the flooded areas. My family now lives in Florida and New Orleans, yet many childhood and high school friends were affected by the flooding.  They lost their homes, their cars, their pets and some have been displaced permanently.  Over 40,000 homes in East Baton Rouge and Livingston Parishes have been lost.  It will take months, years to rebuild and revitalize.

On this birthday, I wanted to do something to give back and encourage others to do so.  Even on our worst day, we all have so much.  Please join me in giving whatever you can -- $10, $20 or more.  It'll all go to the Baton Rouge Area Foundation Relief Fund; they can get the money quickly to where it’s needed the most.  Please give something -- it can help a lot!
