Brad Paisley Starts Fundraiser for Floods in West Virginia
With Brad Paisley’s home state of West Virginia devastated by floods, he has decided to take action. Paisley is asking for donations to benefit the victims of the floods, with a goal of raising $1 million. Over 20 people have been killed by the floods and numerous homes and businesses have been damaged by the natural disaster. Out of the 55 counties in the state, an astonishing 44 have been declared in a state of emergency.
Brad Paisley announced his GoFundMe page through a live video on Facebook and even performed an acoustic version of the song “Country Roads.” Paisley initiated the GoFundMe page by donating $100,000 himself. He stated, “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.”
