$50 for 50 by 50 #43: Baton Rouge Area Foundation

I’m turning 50 this year and instead of whining about it, I’m trying to do something positive by donating $50 to 50 different charities before I’m 50 years old.

For days, relentless rains fell and rivers swelled. Communities across South Louisiana flooded. Even people living on high ground were forced to flee to makeshift shelters, where they are being cared for by more fortunate neighbors.

History shows, over and over, that you can’t wash away the people of Louisiana. They come together to take care of each other. But they could use your help too. Please give to the Baton Rouge Area Foundation Flood Relief Fund.

With no time to waste, the Foundation will send staff members across South Louisiana to find where needs are the greatest. Our research will ensure that your donations go quickly and directly to nonprofits that are doing the most for people who call Louisiana home.

The Louisiana Flood Relief Fund welcomes your donations, and we ask you to share this site with anyone who wishes to help.

Contributions to the Fund are tax deductible.
