Hi, I'm Karen Dudley of Litchfield NH and I will be deploying down to North Carolina in support of Hurricane Matthew. I will be deployed for 2 weeks with the Community Partners team and will work with community agencies across the state to ensure coordination of assistance to disaster victims.
You may know me as Wonder Woman but I'm happy to go help the victims of the disaster. Being a disaster responder is a passion and I truly believe in the mission of the American Red Cross.
It's a large expense to send someone with my expertise down into the disaster zone. Help us out by supporting my deployment! I've set a goal of $5,000 to cover both the expenses while I'm on deployment and an in-kind match of my volunteer hours while deployed.
The massive Red Cross relief effort in response to Hurricane Matthew in the U.S. could cost between $24 – $28 million as volunteers continue to help in the weeks ahead while residents recover from the devastation – yet, the Red Cross has raised only $8.1 million in designated donations and pledges for the response to Matthew thus far.
Donate today. Thank you.
note: since I'm in the field, my staff partner, Kristen Binau will be posting my updates
