Our small river community is Grand Tower, Illinois. Our community is not eligible for State or Federal help to repair our failing levee on the Big Muddy River. So, we are left all alone to try to raise the funds to repair our failing levee.

Our Campaign ‘Walk A Block In Our Boots’ is to raise awareness of how it feels to be left totally alone with no help from the State or Federal Government to save our small river town.

Officials estimate that it will cost one million dollars to repair our failing levee on the Big Muddy River. For the 600 and residents of Grand Tower this almost seems impossible. But, our small river community is working together to try to raise these funds in any way that we can.

If we could get one million people from around the world to donate just one dollar each, then our small river town could raise the one million dollars needed to repair our failing levee on the Big Muddy River. We would like to ask you all to donate one dollar each and Walk A Block In Our Boots to save our small river town.

Grand Tower, Illinois is a small town located in between the Mississippi River and the Big Muddy River. We are located in a Flood Plain, New Madrid Fault Zone, in a Small Disadvantaged Business Zone as well as being right in the middle of a Food Desert. Our Levees were built around our small river town to protect us from rising flood waters from 1949 to 1952. Over the years these levees have deteriorated and are now failing. At the present time the levee on the Big Muddy River that is located in Grand Tower has begun to fail and has large holes in it. At any given moment we do not know when the water may come rushing in on us engulfing and destroying our small river town. We are the Faces Of The Flood Plain. Each person that lives here has a name and a face. Our fears and worries are real. We are just normal people with families and the place that we call home is Grand Tower. We have goals, dreams and ambitions just like every other American. We are hard working and love our small river community. The people in our small community is made up mostly of small farm families.

Our Levees are in great need of repair and the people in our small community Does Not Have the Money to repair our Levees. Our need is great!

We just want a chance to save our community by re-building and repairing our broken Levee Systems that surround our small river town to keep us all safe.

Please, help if you can and please pass along fundraiser to your family and friends around the world. Thank you for your help!
