Baton Rouge Needs Our Help!

September 10, 2008 at 4:51 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , )

We usually post on Monday and Friday, but our friends over at Catalyst just informed us of a need that we feel is worth passing along to you. Due to the media concentration on Hurricane Gustav hitting New Orleans, not many people know how badly Baton Rouge was hit. As of last Friday there were reports that power could be out for another 4-6 weeks! Homes have been destroyed and relief help has yet to reach some areas in the bayou. 

This area has become very dear to us as we met several amazing people there this summer while filming Anthem.  Jeannie and the girls we filmed, live in the Baton Rouge area and we have yet to get a hold of them. In the meantime we’ve been praying for some way to reach out and help this area. 

Watch this video and read this blog to connect with a really simple way to send help. 

Broken Voices sent 10 tarps to Healing Place church today. Will you join us in helping the people of Baton Rouge?
