I turn 31 the weekend of our big Sound the Alarm event. Please help me celebrate by donating $31 to our mission and help us create more prepared communities. I can’t think of a better way to bring in a new year of my life than to help serve others! In honor of my dad and his siblings, I decided to suppprt our Jersey City event since that is where they grew up. My grandmother raised my dad and my seven aunts and uncles in a small apartment there after my grandpa passed away. They were able to thrive because of the generosity of others in their community. Being able to support the Sound the Alarm event in Jersey City is a way for me to give back to the community that cared for my dad and aunts and uncles so many years ago. Thank you all for helping me make this birthday extra special by joining me in changing lives! Seven times a day someone in this country dies in a house fire and more than 60 percent 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 percent 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 across the country to install FREE smoke alarms, educate families about fire prevention, and map fire escape routes. We have a goal to install 700 smoke alarms in JERSEY CITY, NJ on Saturday, April 28 - Sunday, April 29. You can sign up to volunteer for the event at www.redcross.org/soundthealarmNJ Your contribution to this effort 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.
