Country Stars Step Up For Hurricane Relief

posted by Amanda Jo - 

Last night I watched a piece in the news about people leaving their pets behind... some to die and I cried a little. Then I looked at Roxy and said I'd never leave you I'd strap you to my front in a baby carrier and do what it took to get us out! 

Country stars having been stepping up to help in a big way. Perhaps most notable so far Chris Young who started a go fund me through his Foundation. The money will be filtered to the Red Cross. He's already pledged $100,000 of his own money with a goal of half a million. 

Miranda Lambert has been working with her MuttNation Foundation to relocate shelter animals. 

AND Lady Antebellum will be donating proceeds from their merch table in Dallas this Friday night to Hurricane relief. 

So many ways to help, but the biggest thing right now will be money to organizations that will know how to best disperse to those effected. Red Cross is the biggest partner. You can donate online or text "Harvey" to 90999 to donate $10 to the victims. 

As everyone knows, Texas was hit Friday by Hurricane Harvey which made landfall as a category four hurricane, the largest storm to hit the area in decades. Port Aransas, Rockport, Corpus Christi, Houston and so many other places are going to be dealing with so much damage and loss of life for a long time to come. I’m worried about the people there — my friends, family and neighbors — and I want to help. I’m starting this GoFundMe campaign in an effort to help everyone in Texas that has been affected by this hurricane. I’m pledging $100,000 to relief efforts and hope you will join me (link in bio).
