#LAFlood Rugby Relief

Tax deductible

Baton Rouge received record breaking flooding, which took everything from many residents. 

Members of Louisiana Lagniappe, a women's rugby team, created this campaign and it went far beyond what they expected. They partnered with leadership from the Austin Huns and the Austin Valkyries to create Rugby Relief.

Rugby Relief is a non-profit in the process of creation, which will use rugby power to help when disaster strikes in FEMA Section 6.

We are using all donations gained in this GoFundMe campaign to help in Louisiana flood relief, and any remaining funds will be given to charity groups assisting Louisiana.

Rugby Relief feels we have what we need to help Louisiana, and still have money left over to donate to charity. Due to this, we turned off donations, because we want to turn our future monetary efforts toward Rugby Relief. To establish the foundation, and prepare for future disasters (we are only in the middle of hurricane season -- at this moment).

If you would like to assist in the funding of Rugby Relief, e-mail us at [email redacted]

Things we have done with donations up to this point:
*Feed and hydrate victims.
*Feed and hydrate volunteers.

*Assist in moving damaged items from houses to curb sides.
