Today, (Sept. 9) Britney Spears appeared on The Ellen Show where she donated $125,000 to the Red Cross for the Louisiana Flood Relief.
Teaming up with host Ellen Degeneres, Spears released a video in which the two raise awareness on the issue. Additionally, Ellen discusses why the cause is so important to her.
“Britney and I, I don’t know if everyone knows this, are both from Louisiana, and we are both heartbroken over everything that’s going on with the flooding. 100,000 homes have been damaged, thousands of people need help, and thousands of animals are in rescue shelters.”
The singer previously appeared on Ellen and the two partook in a comedy skit at a mall in Los Angeles earlier this week. But now they’re getting a little bit more serious. She’s constantly used her Social Media platforms to further raise awareness and auctioned off her outfit at the VMAs for further proceeds. The winners of the auction actually got to fly out to the awards show and get the chance to meet Spears in person.
“I’m happy to announce that today I’m donating $125,000 to provide this emergency relief vehicle for the Red Cross to my home state of Louisiana,” Britney Says in the the clip.
