I am deeply grateful for your generosity and support as I train to run the Marine Corps Marathon on October 26, 2014. This year I am running on Team Red Cross to help raise funds for disaster relief.
Each year, the American Red Cross immediately responds to about 70,000 natural and man-made disasters in the U.S. People count on the Red Cross to help them in their darkest hour. In turn, the support of donors like you makes it possible for the Red Cross to fulfill its humanitarian mission. Thank you for joining me. Here are a few ways your dollars will be turned into essential needs:
• If you donate $335, you can cover the cost to deploy an Emergency Response Vehicle to a disaster in our community
• If you donate $200, you can provide a family of 4 with a standard package of supplies including a clean-up kit and comfort items
• If you donate $125, you can provide a single blanket for 25 people affected by disaster
• If you donate $50, you can cover the cost to provide a parent with diapers, wipes and soy formula for an infant
• If you donate $20, Red Cross workers will be able to provide 2 hot meals (lunch and dinner) to be distributed at shelters through mobile feeding in our community

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
