My name is Meghan Linsey. Some of you may know me as Season 8, runner-up of The Voice.
As a Louisiana native and a hometown Ponchatoula girl, it is with a heavy heart that I am starting this GoFundMe page. As you have probably seen on the news, southeast Louisiana was ravaged by, what they are calling the 500 year flood, over the weekend. Most families lost their entire homes, cars, EVERYTHING!
I have personal friends who are without basic needs. It's completely unbelievable and beyond sad.
I have banned together with my friend and fellow Season 8 of The Voice, winner, Sawyer Fredericks, his mom Kirsten, my mom Roberta and my dear friend Brittany Morris, who is living in Ponchatoula, to raise as much money as possible and to make sure that it goes directly to victims and their families and back into the local community where I am
Most families don't have access to kitchens and all of them will be cleaning out and rebuilding their homes. Therefore, our idea is to use the money to buy gift cards to local restaurants and local hardware stores and distribute them to families. We will also use it to hire local carpenters. That way we are keeping the money in the local community, helping to rebuild the local economy, and helping the flood victims, all at the same time.
I was feeling helpless being in Nashville but I truly believe, that if we all band together, we can make a difference.
If you are able to donate, even a little bit, it all counts and adds up.
Thank you all so much!
God bless Louisiana.
