As we Americans have shown time after time…. we open up our hearts and give our resources in times of need — whether its New Orleans or Thailand.
The good folks in Southern California who survived the brushfires, but may have lost all of their possessions, now need our help.
I donated to Direct Relief International on Friday to help those in Southern California.
Direct Relief International provides medical assistance to improve the quality of life for people victimized by poverty, disaster, and civil unrest at home and throughout the world. We work to strengthen the in-country health efforts of our partners by providing essential material resources – medicines, supplies and equipment.
I chose this organization because my company matches my personal contribution dollar-for-dollar.
There are of course many other good and reputable organizations, like the American Red Cross. Just please take a moment today and do some good for your fellow Americans on the West Coast. Give what you can.
