As a native of Glen Dale, West Virginia, Brad Paisley is showing support for his flood-ravaged state. The country superstar has launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for the victims of the floods.
Paisley also literally put his money where his mouth is, jump-starting the charity campaign with his own $100,000 donation. Paisley’s goal is to raise $1 million with the campaign.

On June 23rd, my home state of West Virginia experienced tremendous flooding that killed over 20 people and destroyed entire small towns. Three counties have been declared federal disasters and 44 of the 55 counties have been declared in a state of emergency. Now that the waters are receding it’s time to pitch in and help in any way we can. One of the best ways I have found that hopefully will raise the largest amount of money the quickest and get it to the people in need the fastest is through GoFundMe.
I have set a goal of $1 million — this is doable and only a small portion of what is needed.
Brad also took to Twitter to share the news:
