BIG HEART for the Heartland
The American Red Cross just honored Trace Adkins with their Crystal Cross Award. The organization’s President and CEO, Gail J. McGovern said, "TRACE brings humor, honesty, hard work, and grit to everything he does. We could not ask for a better representative of the Red Cross.
Coincidentally, country music star Trace Adkins just raised more than $1.5 million for the Red Cross which was his charity of choice to receive his win on The Celebrity Apprentice.
On America’s Newsroom he told Martha MacCullum why he competed for the Red Cross. “We all know that the Red Cross is always there when huge natural disasters like this happen, but I represented the Red Cross on the Celebrity Apprentice this year because sometimes we forget that they also respond to over 70,000 house fires a year in this country.”
“Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, 365, there’s a Red Cross volunteer somewhere in this country selflessly helping somebody,” Adkins said.
The Heartland needs YOU TOO! DONATE to the RED CROSS!!
The American Red Cross is helping people in the Midwest and they need your help to supply shelter, food, relief supplies and emotional comfort after tornadoes destroyed homes and left thousands without power. As many as 26 tornadoes were reported in Oklahoma, Kansas, Illinois and Iowa, according to the National Weather Service. Hardest hit is Oklahoma, where severe tornadoes ripped through several counties, destroying or damaging hundreds of homes and leaving as many as 35,000 in the dark. The Governor declared a state of emergency in 16 counties. The Red Cross is supporting first responders and is providing shelter, food, distributing relief items and clean-up supplies and working with local and state officials to ensure people get the help they need.
The Red Cross is also helping in Kansas, Iowa and Missouri, where storms left more than 71,000 people without power.
