    President Obama proclaims March to be Red Cross month. Now is the time to create awareness for Chile quake victims and Haiti earthquake survivors. The earthquake death toll in 2010 is at new heights. Volunteers across the world are extending their reach to donate supplies and funds to humanitarian relief efforts. Medicine, materials, generators, fuel and clean water are what people need most.

    Generosity is what drives us.
