 SAN FRANCISCO, CA
Hi my name is Michael Jones representing the Jones Family Disaster Relief Fund and I am trying to raise $50,000 to aid in the assistance of clothes, food, furniture, paneling, flooring, personal upkeep, raw structual material for the rebuilding of our family home & family members who were impacted by the August 2016 Baton Rouge Louisiana Severe Stom/Flood etc. I was born in New Orleans Louisiana and schooled in Baton Rouge Louisiana, now residing in the SF, CA. Bay Area. I am the eldest son of 4 siblings. Son of Mrs. Brenda C. Jones, now Mrs. Brenda C. Brownlee of Baton Rouge Louisiana. Due to the Extreme Flooding in Baton Rouge Louisiana, my family ( mom, sister, niece, nephews, cousins, son & daughters )has taken a tremendous blow to mother nature, loosing, homes, cars, trailers, jobs, valuables & sentimental items obtained over several years of living in Southern Louisiana. At this time the family is in a rebuilding stage, trying to clean up and regain the lives once had prior to the August 2016 Severe Storm/Flood. We are in desperate need of assistance and want you to know that our family has a tremendous amount of pride, which this isn't easy for us to ask or do, however knowing the severity of this situation, we have to just let it go and realize we are in need of your help. We know we can not do it on our own and any donation or donations are greatly appreciated! We will keep you informed on where these donations are being put to use and let you know and see the progress of the rebuild of the Jones Family home, as well as those family members who were affected also. Our plan of withdrawal is to allow our main beneficiary, Mrs. Brenda Brownlee to be allowed to make withdrawals, once these monies are transferred to her account in order to get the needed supplies for the family. We the family would like to say Thank You to each one of you who will open your hearts to donate and we do ask that you keep our family in heart, mind & prayer!

Sincerely,
Jones Family Relief Fund
Michael Jones

Hello friends, fans and people of common interest. At this time, I Michael Jones am in Baton Rouge Louisiana helping restore the family home. There is so much more to be done, this project will most likely take between 1-2 years until it's complete. There's plenty to be done on the inside house from, hanging sheet rock, setting sinks, re-flooring, hanging doors, putting down carpet, taping & mud, sealing, etc. However the outside is also in need of attention, which at this specific time myself, and a crew are on the outside job now! This project could not be done without your helping hands, and at this time the funds we've collected are still a ways off from our goal set. We ask and do appreciate any continued support and contributions in order for the family to get back on their feet and re-enter into their home once again. We thank each and everyone of you and please keep our family in prayer..

Hello friends, fans and people of common interest. I would like to say thank you so much for the donations thus far! We are right now in the process of waiting for inspections and more monies for much needed supplies and tools to aid in the rebuild of the family home. We are certainly a long way off and whatever you can do, we greatly appreciate it. I am personally going back home this week to see what all else needs to be done to the house and will help as much as possible while I'm back home. Please refer and share this campaign with as many as possible, our family needs your help. Again thank you for your help thus far. I will be updating you as soon as I get home to show you all what's going on. Times are hard, but when a village comes together, we all together will conquer these trials, tribulations and hard times that has brought such destruction. Take care all.

Hello friends, fans, family and people of common interest. The house is still in process of being cleared of the mold and debris that still exists. The family has literally been doing most of all the physical work and has been dedicating a lot of their time towards the house. This is a strenuous process and mom is heartbroken by this whole episode. We are in hopes we can reach out to more helping hands and if you all may know of some help that can be sent to the family, please do not hesitate to share information, thanks. Again thank you All for the help thus far, we are still way off from the goal set and are in hopes to eventually reach it or at least get close! Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you Everyone who's in support of the Jones Family Relief Fund..

Hello friends, fans, family and people of common interest. We had a small problem with the transfer of monies, which caused a slight delay in me updating the happenings which are going on. Now all should be well, as GoFundMe management team assured us everything will be ok! Now as far as the house, it's just about gutted out and most all damaged possessions have been put to the curb ( 9ft stack of trash ) for trash pick-up. Floors with carpet have been pulled out and walls with mold have been torn down. My mom's favorite room in the house is the kitchen and it is just destroyed! The walls have been gutted, all appliances ruined and pulled out, so many memories our family shared in that kitchen and so many wonderful meals from her hands to the mouths of many she's prepared. It will be a total reconstruct. The back bedrooms are still under tear down and gut out, and still will be some time before actually complete before the rebuilding process begins. Please stay positive with us as the family at this time is overwhelmed by this whole episode and please keep us in prayer? Below are some of the most recent pics of the house and the progress to recovery. We love you all and thank you for your support thus far. If you will, please share our campaign with a friend, in hopes their hearts will be open with care to contribute as well. Again thank you ALL!!

Jones Family,
Michael Jones

Thank you all for your continued support and contributions! We are still a long way off from our goal and I am in hopes you can spread the word on the need for the community to help at this time. Our cry comes from a far land and if we can help our brothers & sisters in Louisiana at this time, I am saying that we, as I am a native of the area, we are saying thank you, we need you and we'd love to see a nation come together at this critical time in life. Any support helps and no contribution is too great or too small, it will all be put to the greater good of rebuilding a family that was once strong and secure. I applaud those who have dedicated their time to following what's going on with the Jones family and those who have literally gone to the house and helped my mom and family start the clean up process. I love my family and my family loves you, for you being the people you are, caring, loving souls that won't let their fellow man be taken away or beat down by disaster! So again thank you ALL. Stay tuned for more updates and share our GoFundMe campaign, please... Thank you, MJ
