Last year when Hurricane Harvey tore through our area, we were thankful to come out with no damage. Out of all of our family that lives in the area, only one home was hit hard.
The rebuilding process is still in full force here.
American Red Cross Giving Day
It’s been a trying time in our area, but also a time where the community has come together. We’ve had so many opportunities to donate both time and money to those in need in our area.
But the need never ends. If it’s not happening in our own community, there is always a need somewhere else. Disasters don’t take a vacation. Which means we need to all continue to come together and take care of each other! Did you know that the American Red Cross meets a family that has lost everything nearly every eight minutes? Disaster doesn’t stop for holidays or during the night.
Each day there are families losing everything due to home fires or other disasters. The home full of memories, their clothes, and even their most cherished possessions.
I cannot even imagine what they must feel like during those first few hours.
Red Cross Giving Day on March 28th
The American Red Cross Giving Day is on Wednesday, March 28th. It’s a 24-hour fundraising event that is focused on raising money to help support disaster relief work.
The goal of the 2018 Red Cross Giving Day is to raise funds to help 25,000 families. By donating during the event, you will be helping provide these families with a day’s worth of essentials like food and blankets.
Did you know that a gift of $88.50 can provide a family with a day’s worth of food, plus blankets and other essentials? By giving we can make a huge difference in the lives of another family. We can let a family know that people care. Your donations now will support Red Cross Giving Day which is raising money to help support families after disasters big and small!
The gift you make today will go towards the Giving Day goal! If we each #help1family, think of what we could do!
