Hi, my name is Angel Do. I live in Connecticut, but my family lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where there has been recent severe flooding. On August 13th, I received a call from my mom to let me know that the water was coming in fast ,that she, my dad and brother were awaiting rescue. They were almost waist deep in flood water. A lot of the roads were blocked due to high water or too dangerous to travel on so no emergency personnel could get to them. Luckily, my youngest sibling, Tam was with her boyfriend and his friends who had a boat. It took several hours and a lot of effort to get them, but thankfully, they were put on a boat and got to safety. The water receded two days later, and they returned to what was left of their home. There is severe damage to their house, and they lost most of their possessions as well as their vehicles. Like many, they do not have flood insurance (they are in a no flood zone), and FEMA will cover only a fraction of the costs for repairs. As my family in is piecing back their lives, Mark, my sister Kim and I are doing what we can from afar, but we want to do more. Any additional assistance is much appreciated. Friends, it is not easy to ask, and I wouldn’t if I didn’t think they needed it, if you could and have the means to, please consider donating or or making a purchase for a $20 Tshirt, $25 shipped (pictured above) that my more than wonderful fiancé Mark Rolland is making for this cause. 100% of the proceeds will go toward their relief. Again, all donations are welcome but if you are purchasing a tshirt through here, you will also need to email my sister Kim at [email protected]
and provide your contact info (name and address) as well as specify gender for tshirt, qty and size so that we can get you your shirt. Please consider sharing this page with anyone that would like to help.
