The American Red Cross

The Republic of Tea has donated to the American Red Cross’ relief efforts for the Japan Earthquake, Pacific Tsunami Disaster, Hurricane Sandy and now the current Northern California Wildfires.

Since its founding in 1881, the American Red Cross has been the premier emergency response organization, distinguishing itself in aid of natural disaster victims as well as victims of war.  The American Red Cross is where people mobilize to help their neighbors – across the street, across the country, and across the world – in emergencies.

The American Red Cross is providing shelter, food and comfort for people needing refuge from the recent Northern California Wildfires that are devastating communities just 20 miles north of our Novato, California headquarters.  A number of our Ministers’ friends and family members saw their homes destroyed, and our hearts ache for all those whose lives have been forever changed by these fires.

The Republic of Tea is making a $10,000 donation to the American Red Cross to support those affected by the wildfires.  Please click here to learn more about the efforts of the Red Cross and how you can help.
