A note from AllBrands about the floods in Baton Rouge.

Hello Everyone

We are trying to raise money for 6 of our employees to help out with the damages and loss they experienced with the recent Louisiana flooding. We haven't been getting much press about this nationally so I wanted to share this with people that we do business with or those of you who know them personally. The water came up so fast people didn't have time to save anything. People barley got themselves out, and many had to be rescued by boats.

All six of our employees have been devastated, though one of our employees experienced the worst of it. Her house is beyond repair, as it was so damaged by the waters that the state is going to condemn it due to mold. Two other employees had 4 feet of water in their houses and lost just about everything they owned. They both have to completely tear out the interior of their houses and rebuild.

We decided to help out a little and raise some money around the office from our own employees. We are going to purchase some Visa gift cards to help them replace some clothing or food they lost. If you'd like to donate, you can visit the GoFundMe account we've set up to help them get back on their feet. Anything will help. Most of the flooded areas didn't require flood insurance, and home owners insurance doesn't cover flooding. 

None of the AllBrands employees who were affected know that we are trying to raise money for them. Let this be our secret. Please visit https://www.gofundme.com/allbrandstaff to donate.

Thank you
