Day 1 – Helping Victims in Beirut

The recent tragedy in Lebanon ranks as one of the largest, non-nuclear explosions in human  history.  Thousands injured, hundreds killed, and an untold number of victims left homeless.  

News sources recommend a handful of reputable venues to those who want to contribute to relief efforts.  The one that seems to reoccur most frequently is the Red Cross. 

In particular, as my inaugural $100 gift, I have chosen the Lebanese Red Cross“which dispatched ambulances from around the country to Beirut to help with rescuing and evacuating patients. They also set up triage and first aid stations.”  USA Today
