Red Cross Month

Earlier this week, the American Red Cross announced that the public had donated $120.5 million to help the people of Japan. Thanks to your help, GCDSpa was one of the donors.

The week after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, I went to the Red Cross website to make a donation. When I saw that March was Red Cross Month, I decided I'd donate more. As of today, we've donated 10% of our gross sales for the month to the American Red Cross to support disaster relief efforts in Japan.

If you're not familiar with the Red Cross, this is how they describe what they do:

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation's blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission. For more information, please visit www.redcross.org or join our blog at http://blog.redcross.org.

I love supporting the Red Cross because an average of $.91 of every dollar they spend is on humanitarian efforts. We couldn't have done this without you, so thank you for helping!
