Louisiana Flood Relief of 2016

$5,950 of $16,000 goal

Raised by 122 people in 18 months
John White
on behalf of Stacey Gremillion
 BATON ROUGE, LA
My name is John White and I created this video in Baton Rouge, LA.  These are kids from our HFH home school group helping one of their own during a time of need with demolitions.  This family is one from out of 16 families within our group that were dislocated and devastated by the historic Flood of 2016.  Suddenly, these large catholic families with limited expendable cash flow where swooped into a crisis which relies on the generosity of others.   

I started this fund, in their honor, to help them replace some of the school supplies and basic necessities that were lost such as: beds, personal items, kitchenware, cleaning supplies etc.  Many items like the piano could not be salvaged.  Once the work of the volunteers’ comes to an end; the gains from financial assistance take over.  Please help in any amount you can.  I would love to see these children get there life back to normal.  School is starting now, so this money could be used right away.

Thank you for your consideration and openheartedness. God Bless.

Notes for clarification:
The money raised in this campaign will go to the families associated with our homeschool group who lost homes and belongings in the flood.  16 families in all were affected.

I am one of the members of said homeschool group - The Holy Family Homeschoolers, Baton Rouge LA.
Jennifer Ledoux is the beneficiary:  She is in charge of the home school group   https://www.homeschool-life.com/265/

Stacy Gremillion is the Treasurer: Jennifer Ledoux assigned her the task of receipt of the funds.

The money raised will be distributed as equal as possible to those families within 30 days of the end of this campaign in order to buy basic necessities.

I am closing my GoFundMe account. I would like to thank everyone who donated to the campaign. We raised $5,930. The money will be split up to those in my home school group who were flooded and are still struggling to make their lives whole again. It will only be a few hundred each but it's still money that is needed. Thanks to Mark for your viral video piano playing. John
