When Brad Paisley heard about the devastating floods in his home state of West Virginia in June, he jumped into action and started a GoFundMe account, pledging a $100,000 of his own money and getting fans involved.
While the singer’s GoFundMe account has not yet reached it’s million dollar goal, Brad Paisley is still working hard to help out his home state.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held on Saturday for 42 homes and a community park to be built on land donated by the city of White Sulphur Springs. They will be for residents whose homes were destroyed in the June 23 floods.
Homes for West Virginia, a newly formed partnership with local stakeholders and New Orleans-based SBP, a disaster recovery nonprofit group founded after Hurricane Katrina, announced that Brad Paisley had personally donated $250,000 for the project.
Sounds like a good start for all the people whose homes were destroyed in the flooding.
Paisley’s GoFundMe account has a goal of raising one million dollars and so far has raised nearly $700,000.
