Chris Young has pledged $100,000 to relief efforts and has urged others to donate through his GoFundMe campaign. “I’m worried about the people there — my friends, family and neighbors — and I want to help”, he writes on Instagram.
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).
