It’s been a rough week, to say the least. I’m writing today because I am deeply saddened by the horrific events in recent days, namely the Boston Marathon bombings and the explosion in West, Texas.
As a marathoner and Texan, these tragedies hit particularly close to home for me. My thoughts are with the victims, their families and the community.
The American Red Cross is supporting people in West, Texas after the plant explosion while continuing to help first responders and those affected by the marathon bombings which occurred earlier this week in Boston.
“Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this week’s tragic events in Texas and Boston,” Trevor Riggen, vice president of Disaster Operations for the Red Cross, said in a statement. “Our teams are
on the ground now helping those in need and we will continue to work in close coordination with officials in Texas and Boston to determine how we can best support these communities as they recover.”
I want to be a part of the recovery process, so I’m donating 10 percent of our online sales through May 31 to the American Red Cross.
Thank you for supporting this worthy cause.
