WASHINGTON, Monday, January 03, 2005 — In response to the recent earthquake and tsunamis devastating entire countries in southern Asia and eastern Africa, the American Red Cross is pleased to announce a generous $1 million donation from Sandra Bullock, one of Hollywood’s most popular actresses. These funds will support Red Cross response to victims’ needs in the affected region in the form of relief supplies, financial support and technical assistance. Bullock contacted the Red Cross last week to make this, her second million dollar gift, to the American Red Cross. She donated $1 million to the American Red Cross in the wake of the September 11th terrorist attacks in 2001.
“At this critical time, I am grateful to Sandra Bullock, for once again demonstrating her leadership, compassion and belief in our global humanitarian mission,” said Marsha J. Evans, President and CEO of the American Red Cross. “Sandra continues to enable our lifesaving work and is a model for personal generosity.”

OK tlunn, you'll love this....
I was on the Wal-Mart web site looking for the animal beds for Kodie's mom and saw this:
Wal-Mart and SAM'S CLUB donated $2 million to support the Tsunami relief efforts. The company also has collection points in all stores, clubs and online. Please join us in making a donation to the Red Cross.
Wow $2 Mil.... not bad!
Good for them!!!!! (and thanks for sharing that, because I sure didn't know) Now where are the other big companies? Those people/countries need LOTS of help!
Go Wal-Mart! LOL
It is always nice to see that even though Americans get a bad rap, that we are there to support others and other countries in a time of need--it makes me proud to be an American!
