Giving is good! It's good to give. Just ask Trace Adkins.
Adkins, a multi-platinum award-winning country star, actor and author, will serve as the spokesperson for the 2012 American Red Cross Holiday Giving Campaign! He's a country roughneck, and a true American.
In supporting the Red Cross campaign, Adkins is encouraging people to look beyond material gifts this holiday season and instead consider giving charitable donations, sending cards for military heroes or donating life-saving blood.
"When my home was claimed by fire last year, the Red Cross was among the first on-site. They looked after my family when I couldn't be there and offered to help in any way they could. We were fortunate because we only lost 'things' that could be replaced. That's not the case for every victim of disaster and that's when the Red Cross steps in. From personal experience, I am supporting the Red Cross and their work to unite families and aid in times of need," says Adkins in a statement.
The Red Cross giving campaign features an online catalog that enables people to make a tax-deductible charitable donation this holiday season that help provide items such as food and shelter for disaster victims, military comfort kits, or basic necessities for families who have lost everything in a disaster. It also encourages people to make a blood donation during the holiday season.
