At least 11 people have died in the floods in Louisiana this week. And it’s forced thousands of people into shelters. So it’s nice to see at least one GOOD story come out of it.
A 35-year-old guy named Christian Dornhorst lives across the Mississippi River from Baton Rouge. And after he got to work Monday morning, he decided he’d rather be out doing something to help the victims.
So he asked his boss if he could have the day off, and went to Sam’s Club to buy food to throw a free BARBECUE.
There are a bunch of sound stages there where they’ve shot stuff like “True Blood” and the second “Twilight” movie. And they’re being used as shelters for thousands of people right now.
So Christian and his wife showed up with a smoker and $850 worth of food, including chicken, sausage, three pot roasts, and 108 POUNDS of brisket. And they cooked for people all day.
Apparently the brisket went in about 20 minutes, so some people didn’t get any. So he was planning to ask his boss for TUESDAY off as well, so he could go back and do it again. But we haven’t seen any updates yet. (Washington Post)
