Dolly Parton Makes TRAGIC Announcement. Will You Support Her After This?

By

While liberal celebrities have been busy chastising American for electing Trump and patting themselves on the back for being so “brave,” conservative stars have been up to a very different kind of activism.

You don’t hear much about it, because most conservative celebs aren’t loudmouths like their liberal counterparts.

Take, for instance, Dolly Parton, who’s been one of the biggest music stars in the world for decades.

Parton’s not out there talking herself up, so you might not be aware that she’s doing more for average folks than a hundred whiney Hollywood snowflakes would ever dream of doing.

From Liftable:

In 2016, wildfires swept through Sevier County, doing nearly $1 billion in damages. Hurricane-force winds had swept sparks from a fire near the Chimney Tops Trail in the Great Smoky Mountains through miles of drought-stricken forest, destroying homes and killing 14 people.

As soon as authorities had the blaze under control, Parton jumped into action. She formed the My People Fund, and pledged to provide $1,000 per month in cash to the 921 individuals in Sevier County whose homes had been destroyed by the fire.


The program was only supposed to run for six months. But when families showed up to get their final checks at Pigeon Forge’s LeConte Center this month, they got an amazing surprise.

Instead of checks for $1,000, they discovered the checks were for $5,000. That brought the total funds each individual received to $10,000.

But that wasn’t the only surprise Parton had in store. She also announced the creation of an organization called Mountain Tough.

Mountain Tough will pick up immediately after the conclusion of the My People Fund project. The $3 million organization has pledged to support fire victims for the next three years.

When asked about the outreach, Parton said, “It makes me feel humble. … When you’re in a position to help, you should help.”
