Hunter S. Thompson

Hunter S. Thompson once described the Red Cross

Hunter S. Thompson once described the Red Cross as an organization

Hunter S. Thompson once described the Red Cross as an organization that responds to major disasters

Hunter S. Thompson once described the Red Cross as an organization that responds to major disasters … with minor toilet articles.

It’s a funny line.

and it’s even true

… but there is so much more to the story

Disasters Change Lives.

Disasters Change Lives. You

Disasters Change Lives. Can

Disasters Change Lives. You Can Too.






Floods Fires Tornadoes Hurricanes Earthquakes Every Year

Floods Fires Tornadoes Hurricanes Earthquakes Every Year Millions of People Lose Everything

So What?

Loss sucks.

Disasters create loss

Loss creates victims

Victims often feel powerless

Powerlessness leads to bad health Physically and Emotionally

People in Bad Health Who Have Lost Everything Are Not Good for Communities

Sick communities are not good for our culture or country.


It doesn’t have to be this way.

Disasters destroy stuff. They don’t have to destroy lives.

You Can Help

It doesn’t take much

Just ask: “ How Can I Make Things Better?”

Answer: By providing immediate care in the aftermath of a disaster

Simple stuff.


Blankets. Warm meals.

Blankets. Warm meals. Toothbrushes.

Blankets. Warm meals. Toothbrushes. Mops.

Blankets. Warm meals. Toothbrushes. Mops. A place to lay down for the night.

Blankets. Warm meals. Toothbrushes. Mops. A shoulder to lean on.

This keeps everyone on their feet while they cope with the loss of stuff.

And stops the feelings of powerlessness
