BENEFITING: American Red Cross

Sagar Raste

THE STORY:

This is my 2014 year resolution! I have been a recurring donor to the charity I believe in, American Red Cross. I want to raise the awareness and get my friends involved in raising money for this global institution.

In recent past, we have seen more frequent extreme weather conditions and frequent natural calamities. Number of sever hurricanes increase each year. Tornadoes are getting more and more destructive than ever. Summers are getting record hot and winter storms are super cold.

You may think that people can get help from neighbors, friends from nearby communities. But most of the time that’s not possible because when calamity like hurricane hits, it disrupts whole city, communication, etc. And it is just not possible for neighbors, friends to help each other even if they want to.

You may think that insurance can protect your home and family from such natural disasters. But help from Insurance companies will take months or sometimes years to bring affected people back to normalcy.

Mission of American Red Cross:

THE AMERICAN RED CROSS PREVENTS AND ALLEVIATES HUMAN SUFFERING IN THE FACE OF EMERGENCIES BY MOBILIZING THE POWER OF VOLUNTEERS AND THE GENEROSITY OF DONORS.
