Casey Donahew And Wife Melinda Aid Lone Star Teachers In A Texas-Sized Way

Lone Star state favorite Casey Donahew and his wife Melinda always do their part to give back in their home state of Texas, so when they decided to help a school teacher with her school supplies for the beginning of the year they had no idea how the idea would catch on like wildfire. Melinda came across a post on #clearthelists on social media while having her morning coffee last Friday, and decided to help. After donating she told Casey about it and he posted on his socials asking for help from others and challenging his fans and fellow musicians/celebrities to donate and ask their own followers to donate as well. When his social media blew up with people wanting to help and teachers asking for help, the two decided to start a GO FUND ME page called “Clearthelists” with a goal of $50,000.00, and YouTube influencer Jeffree Starr even joined the cause with a $25,000.00 donation to and shared with his five million followers on Twitter. The Donahews and their fellow clearthelist supporters have now surpassed their goal of raising $50,000 for teachers to help kick off this year’s school year in a great way.
