I just had to share an experience I had last week, while assisting with the flood recovery efforts in South Carolina.
I have served for seven years in this organization and today for the first time I was speechless.
I was sitting and talking with a family at the shelter, who had lost everything this past weekend because of flooding. They have a 6 year old daughter and 3 boys.
After playing games with the kids for a while, the daughter disappeared for a few minutes.
When she came back this is what she gave me…along with a giant hug and said thank you Red Cross.
This was a real reminder of why we do what we do and why I encourage everyone to support the mission and work of the American Red Cross.
