Chris Stapleton and wife Morgane have donated $10,000 to help a family grieving the death of their twin babies who were lost after the devastating flooding in Tennessee. A GoFundMe for the twins parents, Danielle Hall and her husband Matt, set a modest goal of $5,000, but donations quickly exceeded that figure and as of Wednesday night, more than $100,000 had been raised. The Halls also lost their house during the flood that killed 20 people. More than 17 inches of rain drenched Waverly, Tenn., in Humphreys County on Saturday.
The twins’ mother said that she left to find help when the water started to flood their home, leaving their father with the babies and their two older siblings. Seven-month-old Ryan and Riliegh Hall were swept away by the waters, but their father was able to save his 5-year-old and 19-month-old children.
The Stapletons are parents to their own 3-year-old twin boys; they also share a 2-year-old son and two older children.
