    Anyone who reads this post…. If you are in the position to do so please give or volunteer to the American Red Cross, you never know when you might need them. thank you!

  4. Thank you Sarah for sharing your story with us. As I sit at my desk, with tears streaming down my face, I know that I am in the right place. Making a difference in the lives of real people is what we are here to do. Doing the right thing for others becuase it’s the right thing to do. I am so sorry that you are going through this mess, but honored to be a part of the organization of humanitarians that are providing some positive in your life. ~ Nigel Holderby, American Red Cross

    • Nigel, thanks so much for your comment. The work you do with the Red Cross changes lives, makes a difference in ways bigger than you can possibly imagine. We are so grateful that you were there when we needed you, and hope that our story inspires people to act. Thank you 🙂

    Thank you for sharing your story Sarah! It’s a tough road (trust me I know!) but keep your spirits up and keep moving forward! I lost everything in a fire a few months ago and was provided assistance from the Red Cross. That felt very strange to me because I am a Disaster Action Team volunteer with the Red Cross and ironically was on call that night and dispatched to the fire. I too am very grateful for the Red Cross! My experience has made me a stronger person and increased my desire to serve even more! Good Luck to you and your family as your rebuild! Stay positive!!! – Kathi McKinley, ARC volunteer

    • Thanks so much Kathi… it was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever been through (and I’ve been through a lot of crappy stuff!) But without the help of The Red Cross I cant even imagine how much harder it would have been. Thank God for people like you who are there when we need you!

    Hi Sarah!

    This is an incredible story. You are an inspiration to everyone who’s been through something life changing like this. I’m currently working with Uber Productions on behalf of the American Red Cross and we’re in the process of casting storytellers for an upcoming ARC project. Would you be interested in sharing your story and having the opportunity to participate? There is no pressure, as this is a very poignant story and I can only imagine how difficult it has been.

    If you’re interested in learning more about the project, please email me at I really look forward to hearing from you. Thank you again for sharing!

    you support a family of four alone? Well, that can’t be easy
    Women’s lives are hard, sometimes i think it is really unfair
    Good luck in your work, Sarah, you are doing really well!
