Chris Young has stepped up in big way to help provide direct support to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. The Tennessee native donated $100,000 to his compatriots in Texas via a GoFundMe campaign that is benefiting the Red Cross.
Chris’ goal is to raise $500,000 through the campaign.
“As you all know, Texas was hit by Hurricane Harvey, which made landfall as a category four hurricane, the largest hurricane to hit the area in decades,” said Chris in a video. “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 have friends and family there and I’m almost certain my house down there may have to be torn down as it was in one of the areas that was hardest hit by winds and flooding. But that’s the least of my concerns. I’m worried about the people there—my friends, family and neighbors—and I want to help.
“I’m pledging $100,000 to benefit the Red Cross in an effort to help everyone in Texas that has been affected by this hurricane. All donations will be routed through the Chris Young Foundation to distribute directly to Harvey relief through the Red Cross and other disaster relief organizations.
“Love you guys and every little bit helps. In times like these, you turn to your friends to help those in need and that’s exactly what I’m doing. I hope you’ll donate. And Texas, we love you.”
