Calling Badger, Tiger & Football fans!

TODAY (September 3rd) The Wisconsin vs. LSU game at Lambeau Field will not only be the site of great football, but also a chance to support Louisiana flood relief efforts. The Wisconsin Athletic Department and American Family Insurance joined forces with the American Red Cross to boost support game day by encouraging people to text the word LAFLOODS to 90999. And get this – American Family Insurance is donating $10 for each text – up to $50,000!

Gifts will be matched between 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. your gift will be matched! Please share with your friends and fellow fans on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – or even in person!

In addition, the Green Bay Packers and game sponsor Carmex, have each committed $25,000 and Delaware North Concessions has committed $5,000. How amazing – and needed by those affected by the flooding.

We have nearly 100 Red Cross response vehicles fanning through affected neighborhoods to distribute food, water and relief supplies. While our disaster mental health and health services workers are providing emotional support and helping to replace items like lost eyeglasses, wheelchairs and medications.
