Those who donate can win an outfit worn by Spears
Britney Spears is lending a hand to her home state.
The singer took to her social media accounts on Monday, revealing that she’s teamed with the Red Cross and crowd funding website CrowdRise to help raise money for those affected by the recent floods in Louisiana.
“I’ve teamed up with @RedCross and @crowdrise to raise funds for the victims of the horrible flooding in my home state of Louisiana,” Spears, 34, tweeted.
The mother of two also posted the message on Facebook where she further revealed that “Every $10 donation is a chance to win the outfit I wear at the MTV VMAs or a trip to meet me in NYC for the show!”
For the past few weeks, the East Baton Rouge Parish of Louisiana has been ravaged by floods and the governor has declared a state of emergency effective until Sept. 10. At least 13 have died as a result of the “unprecedented” flooding.
“This is certainly not over. The rain continues to fall in the areas that have been most impacted already. This is a very slow-moving, low-pressure system,” Louisiana Cov. John Edwards said in a recent press conference. “Because these are record floods, we don’t know how wide the water is going to get in these areas.”
