Aid for Victims of Irma

Your DGB for today is to help victims of Hurricane Irma.

Hurricane Irma devastated the Caribbean Islands, as well as Florida, and other southern states. Some islands are completely uninhabitable and will take years to recover and rebuild.

Today, we want you to find some small way to contribute to rebuilding the Caribbean Islands and the southern states affected by Irma. One of the easiest ways to help is by donating to the Red Cross. They are one of the biggest relief organizations and have the ability to get aid on the ground immediately. You can donate to them here: https://www.redcross.org/donate/hurricane-irma-donations

Retired NBA superstar Tim Duncan has also set up a campaign to donate money to the islands, as he was born and raised in the US Virgin Islands and felt the affects of Hurricane Hugo as a kid. You can donate to his campaign here: https://www.youcaring.com/21usvirginislandrelieffund-942738

And as always during a natural disaster, local blood banks are in desperate need of donations. Even if your area wasn’t personally affected, a natural disaster can tax all local clinics. If you’re eligible, grab a friend and spend 20 minutes donating at your local clinic. You yours here: http://www.aabb.org/tm/donation/Pages/Blood-Bank-Locator.aspx

Unfortunately, natural disasters are starting to feel like the norm, and DGB understands how taxing they are. Now is the time to come together and show that there is good in this country, and we will continue to work together, despite weak and unpredictable leadership.
