Victims of Hurricane Katrina are attempting to recover from the massive storm. American Red Cross volunteers have been deployed to the hardest hit areas of Katrina’s destruction, supplying hundreds of thousands victims left homeless with critical necessities. By making a financial gift to support Hurricane Katrina Relief efforts, the Red Cross can provide shelter, food, counseling and other assistance to those affected by Hurricane Katrina.
Less than a month after Katrina, Hurricane Rita lashed the Gulf coast and left massive devastation in its wake. The American Red Cross will serve the victims of Hurricane Rita as it has done with Hurricane Katrina, but must rely on the ongoing support of the American public. Your financial gift to Hurricane Rita and continued support of Hurricane Katrina relief efforts will help the Red Cross provide shelter, food, counseling and other assistance to those affected by these hurricanes.
Since ValueMD consists of a large community of caring people from the medical profession, we thought that it would be appropriate to help raise awareness for the Hurricane Relief Effort taking place for the many victims of Hurricane Katrina as our latest Charitable project. Please visit our Charity Information Page for more infomation on our other projects.
We realize that some of you are stuggling medical students and don't have much to give. So to provide an incentive, ValueMD decided to match the donations of it's members up to $200 so that your donations could go even further. Therefore, any donations given were be doubled! If you gave $5, it became $10.....If you donated $50, it became $100...and so on.
No amount is too small because there are so many people in great need of our help. But if you prefer to donate your time, perhaps you can inquire about volunteering for the Red Cross. And if both time and money are too limited to give at this time, your thoughts and prayers for these unfortunate victims will go a long way!
As promised, ValueMD contributed funds to both Hurricane Katrina and Rita Relief Efforts via the American Red Cross. If you'd like to see the receipts and email confirmations, please click here.
Together, we can make a difference!
