After 911, while everyone else was talking about it, The American Red Cross gave me and thousands of other displaced New York survivors food, money, a hotel voucher, and the really basic stuff like a toothbrush and a comb. They even had food for my dog.
The Red Cross saved my life and I am 100 percent sure they are saving lives in New Orleans and everywhere else that people need help. Please donate today. People are in disaster of biblical proportion. Do what you can to help. The situation becomes more desperate by the minute. Donate right now. Please.
It took FEMA weeks to get their act together. And every second of dealing with them was an ordeal. The Red Cross knows what to do and how to do it. Donate generously!
