This Holiday season, Give where the need is greatest


by Kevin Hagler

My place still hasn’t completely aired out from all the wonderful scents of turkey, delicious casseroles, and cinnamon-y deserts over the holiday weekend. Family from Miami stopped by my humble abode last week to celebrate what had to’ve been one of the best Thanksgivings I’ve had in a long time.

But unfortunately, not everyone has had such a great holiday weekend. There are many still suffering hardships from a severe weather season mother nature wrought. Not to mention the disaster of being displaced by an apartment fire — an unfortunate but daily occurrence here in the US.

The Red Cross responds to disasters large and small more than 70,000 times a year—down the street and across the country. This special gift will honor anyone on your list by helping people in crisis wherever the most urgent need happens to be.

This holiday season, give a gift where the need is greatest and right here in the United States. Starting at $25, you can make a colossal difference of the lives of someone like the little girl pictured above. She didn’t know that a tornado would uproot her and her family. The good news is: the Red Cross is always there as long as there are good people like you who donate to people in crisis by no fault of their own.
