$1 of every ticket sold, through the end of the year, of Britney Spears' Las Vegas shows will go to Louisiana schools for flood recovery. According to a report, from the Advocate, the association executive director Scott Richard says Spears' contribution will go to a fund formed after last summer's floods damaged several schools. The initial money will focus on helping schools and teachers buy instructional materials.
Richard credited Louisiana first lady Donna Edwards with helping with the donation. Spears' mother Lynne and Edwards are friends. Both came from the same parish and previously were schoolteachers there.
