American Red Cross Helps Japan

| March 19, 2011

In exchange for the blog design features I gave to their blog, Spruce Kids chose to donate to the American Red Cross.

This is incredibly fitting given the present circumstances in Japan. Spruce Kids’ donation will be used to work in communities affected by the earthquake in Japan and tsunami throughout the Pacific. American Red Cross is a crucial player in supporting relief work to meet critical needs.

As one of 186 Red Cross and Red Crescent societies around the world, [the American Red Cross] belong[s] to a global humanitarian network of 13 million volunteers uniquely positioned to save lives and provide assistance to those affected by emergencies, such as the earthquake and tsunami in countries across the Pacific.

What I love about donating to Red Cross is that you get to see where your money is going. Read this first-hand account about the lingering disaster in Japan. Or, read about the American Red Cross’ pledge of $10 million to the Japanese Red Cross to aid in recovery and relief.

Click HERE to donate.

I encourage all of you to contribute whatever you can to the relief efforts in Japan. The Red Cross is a reputable, trusted, and committed organization–one you can rely on to use your money for good.

But I also urge each of you to consider taking your support one step further: Get Involved. Did you know that volunteers constitute 96 percent of the Red Cross’ total work force to carry out their humanitarian work? Every year the Red Cross responds to more than 70,000 disastersincluding approximately 150 home fires every day. Half the nation’s blood supply six million pints annuallyis collected by more than 155,000 Red Cross volunteers. That’s a powerful thing to think about.

The Red Cross is working diligently to help those struck by the devastating tsunami.
