Chris Young Sets Up GoFundMe For Hurricane Victims
August 28, 2017
Chris Young might not be from the Lone Star state, but that isn't stopping him from giving back to those who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey.
On Sunday, Chris took to Facebook to announce he set up a Gofundme account that will go directly to benefit the Red Cross in it’s efforts to help those in Texas. The "Losing Sleep" singer kicked off the page by donating $100,000, in hopes that his fans would follow suit and help the cause.
“I have friends and family there, and I’m fairly positive my house down there may have to be torn down as it was in one of the hardest hit areas by wind and flooding. But that’s the least of my concern. I’m worried about the people there…Like I said, my friends, family, neighbors…and I want to help. Please go to Gofundme.com/HarveyRelief. I love you guys and every little bit helps.”
You can donate to the GoFundMe here.
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: http://www.gofundme.com/HarveyReliefPosted by Chris Young on Sunday, August 27, 2017
