Coloradans Chip In to Make a Difference
Generosity rules in Colorado, when it comes to aid for the tsunami victims. Here are just a few examples:
- The First Data Western Union Foundation, the fund-raising arm of the Denver-based conglomerate, donated $1 million to the Red Cross.
- A donor who requested anonymity dropped off a $50,000 check at the Mile High Chapter of the American Red Cross in Denver
- Brothers Antonio, Tomas and Peter Cabrera, ages 3, 5 and 7, dropped by the Red Cross with plastic sandwich bags holding a few dollars each
There's many more examples in the article. Tomorrow night, New Year's Eve, don't be surprised to see collection jars out wherever you go to celebrate. The Red Cross reports Coloradans are being generous with their time as well as money. Several people volunteered to go to Southeast Asia to help, but the agency had to turn them down . Here's a link with ways Coloradans can contribute.
