As many of my friends and family know I have committed my professional career to the American Red Cross. The American Red Cross makes a difference to so many people. Today, I am asking for your help in saving lives.
Seven times a day someone in this country dies in a house fire and more than 60% of fire deaths occur in homes without working smoke alarms. As a first responder to these local tragedies, the Red Cross is working to improve the odds of survival by as much as 25% over the next few years.
Sound the Alarm. Save a Life, is a recurring national event where Red Cross volunteers will be partnering with fire departments and community groups to install FREE smoke alarms, educate families about fire prevention, and map fire escape routes.
A gift of any size helps prepare, respond, and help families recover from home fires. Your gift can literally help save a life and provide hope and urgent relief, like food, shelter, and other essentials, to people in their time of greatest need.
