Our long-time favorite, actress Sandra Bullock, has now become the largest publicly known celebrity donor for her donation of $1 million dollars to the American Red Cross to support the March 11th earthquake and tsunami relief efforts. This is not the first time Sandra has donated to causes that she cares deeply about.
“The American Red Cross is extremely grateful for this generous support from Sandra Bullock and her family,” the organization said in a statement. “This contribution is vitally important as the Red Cross works to provide critical assistance and essential relief items in this time of urgent need for so many people in Japan.”
On Tuesday, the American Red Cross announced an initial contribution of $10 million to the Japanese Red Cross Society to assist in its ongoing efforts to provide medical care and relief assistance to the people of Japan. “The Japanese Red Cross is a highly experienced disaster relief organization with two million volunteers nationwide,” The Red Cross said in a statement. “Many local volunteers took immediate action following the disaster by distributing relief items, offering hot meals, clearing debris and providing medical transportation.” For a first hand account of what’s happening on the ground in Japan, read Nan Buzard’s account. Buzard is a senior director of international response and programs with the American Red Cross.
