“Never worry about numbers.  Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you.” ~Mother Teresa

March is Red Cross Month and the American Red Cross has been around since 1881, providing relief to victims of disaster and helping people prevent, prepare and respond to emergencies. There are many ways to support the Red Cross, such as giving blood, donating food and clothing, and volunteering. For more information, visit their website.

Along with the Red Cross, what other ways can you help? All year, there are people struggling to stay warm, keep hydrated, and provide for their families; Presenta Plaque wants to help you help them! Here are the top three ways to assist those in need:

  1. Donations including food, clothes, water, and blankets
    Here is a great list organizations provided by Oprah.
  2. Volunteering at local shelters

  3. Cash donations to local shelters

Of course, there are many other ways to help, such as packing brown bag lunches and passing them out to homeless individuals, or even donating water and food to local pet shelters. Everyone deserves a little extra help, so show your support today!

Do you know of an individual or community that has gone above and beyond to show support to those in need? Presenta Plaque wants to hear about it! Presenta Plaque to your Hero today, click here to read more!
