HOW TO HELP LOUISIANA from Hillary Clinton

I just got off the phone with Governor John Bel Edwards in Louisiana.

The flooding there is bigger than anyone expected—more than 40,000 homes have been damaged and more than 100,000 people have been affected.

My heart breaks for Louisiana, and right now, the relief effort can't afford any distractions. The very best way this team can help is to make sure Louisianans have the resources they need.

There are two organizations the Governor asked that we help. Chip in right now to the Red Cross at, who are doing critical work to provide medical assistance and supplies to the victims of this natural disaster. You can also donate right now to the Baton Rouge Area Foundation at, a local organization that's directing money to community non-profits that need it.

These are our friends, our family members, our community—and they're counting on us to reach out with open arms right now. This team has done so much for me. Now I'm asking you to show that same support to the victims in Louisiana, so that we can begin to rebuild together.
