Hello everyone! My name is Emma Bentley, and I am a rising Junior at Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School. As a proud member of the Augusta Red Cross Youth Board, I have served for the past two years, on the Executive Committee since February of this year, and was selected to be co-Vice President for the 2014-2015 school year with one of my best friends, Emma Kate Few.
Every year in Augusta, our Red Cross chapter conducts the HEROES Campaign. We raise money and awareness for our local RC chapter through fundraisers and donations. Every year, the Youth Board raises the most money, and as a Hero, I committed myself to raising $1000. I would not have the opportunities and leadership experience I hold today if I was without Red Cross, and I am thankful everyday to be surrounded by such kind, diverse, open-minded, and ambitious people on the Youth Board. I don’t think I could ever put into words how much this organization and board mean to me.
I encourage you to donate today. Absolutely any amount helps. Feel free to flip through the pictures on this fundraising page to get a better feel of what I do with the Red Cross. The HEROES campaign ends 5/29. Thank you!
