BENEFITING: American Red Cross
As many of you know, I was born and raised in Ecuador, a great country that was recently struck by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. Many cities and villages were devastated and affected including the city where I was raised and half of my family currently lives. Fortunately, my family members were not injured but many other families lost their loved ones and everything they worked so hard to obtain. At this time, the death toll is at least 600 people, more than 3000 injured and many more are still missing. Thousands of others were directly affected, having lost their homes and sources of income. Rescue efforts are underway and there is an urgent need for food, clean water, clothing, and tents to serve as provisional shelter. Medical missions are also taking place, with a critical need for medical supplies. I’m kindly asking for donations that can be utilized to support immediate rescue efforts by the Red Cross. Please let’s help those in need.
