The Need, The Need

Received an email from the American Red Cross. Of course, if I had two nickels to rub together, I’d give up both, and if I could donate blood I’d do it. Even with iron supplements, I don’t meet their minimums.


2004 has been a record year for responding to disasters,

large and small. From floods and residential fires…to

hurricanes that devastated entire communities throughout the

southeast U.S….and now preparing to support through our

International Response Fund, relief efforts for the

catastrophic earthquake and tsunamis that struck Southeast


Because of the public’s generous support the American Red

Cross has been able to respond immediately…

But we continue to need your support in the coming months as

we provide relief for victims of local, national and

international disasters.

Additionally, donations from you and other generous

supporters will assure that we meet the demand of collecting

and supplying more than 6 million units of blood for over

3,000 hospitals around the country. Provide classes to

nearly 12 million people annually including CPR, First Aid

and other life saving skills…while keeping military

families around the globe connected. And, prevent 1.2

million measles–related deaths by vaccinating 200 million

children in Africa by the end of 2005.

Your contribution means we can continue to provide these

vital services. Please make a contribution today…and

provide hope and relief for tomorrow. Thank you.

American Red Cross

Together, we can save a life.


Sometimes, I feel small and covered with fur.
