"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."

The Leon Law Firm www.theleonlawfirm.com suggests and requests that you donate to the American Red Cross to help the hundreds of misplaced, injured and homeless citizens of Joplin, Missouri. With the record number of tornadoes this year and the high populated areas they have hit, the red cross is stretched thin and needs our support.
Read below for an example of the types of services the Red Cross provides to victims of these type of diasters, and help as you can.
