Rob Gaudet

Rob Gaudet

Founder/Director

Rob brings over twenty years of experience in Internet system development, brand development and online marketing.
When Rob realized that the national media was not going to cover the flood catastrophe, in true Cajun fashion he took matters into his own hands. Rob contacted friends of his who could help him reach the national press. His objective was to raise awareness on behalf of flood victims on his own. That very day he was on the Rush Limbaugh show, the Sean Hannity show and the Fox Business Network a few days later. Rob continued to do numerous national media appearances, his sole objective was to bring national attention to those in need.
Rob and the team at the Cajun Relief Foundation continue to inform local citizens and keep national attention on the victims of the Great Louisiana Flood through the Cajun Relief Community Facebook group and the Cajun Relief Foundation page on Facebook.
