Korda expressed her sadness and wrote, “So sad. Thinking of @ertalley and her friends/families and everyone effected. Check the link to help out… every cent/dollar helps.” JT, similarly, wrote, “So, so sad. Help spread the word and donate to the people affected by this awful tragedy.”

Kentucky was one of the worst-hit states, and the nightmare caused destruction on an unimaginable level. To help those in need, donate to Talley’s disaster relief fund. Until now, $43,143 has been raised of the $50,000 goal. Hopefully, they raise enough and much more to kick-start the process of re-doing all that they lost.
