Support Your Local Red Cross Heroes

Oklahoma tornado relief from
Hello friends around the world. As you may have recently seen, I am now a "Social Advocate" for the American Red Cross in Minnesota. As a frequent traveller, I am aware that any any moment I may need to rely on the emergency services provided by the Red Cross at home or abroad.

I'll be attending the 2015 Minnesota Red Cross Heroes Breakfast to be held at the Radisson Blu Mall of America in Minneapolis (Bloomington) this Thursday, June 18 from 7-10 am CST. This inspiring event will honor everyday people who helped others during a time of great need. See their stories here. If you're in Minnesota, you can register for the event here.

If you have a Twitter account, please consider retweeting messages I post (from @MichaelOrobona ) or those from others on the team during that time (Thursday, June 18th from 7-10 am CST), so we can keep the hashtags for the breakfast -- #RedCrossHeroes and #MNRedCross -- trending! Or, please share my related Facebook posts between now and the event (and after).

Be a hero. Consider supporting your own local Red Cross chapter, whether by giving blood, time or treasure. You may need it someday.
