In a historical first for the organization, American Red Cross disaster relief services is prominently featured in a new Rascal Flatts music video, ‘Every Day’ as one of several vignettes portraying everyday heroes responding to emergency situations. The video will debut on CMT, GAC, Yahoo Online, AOL, MSN and Clearchannel.com starting this week. In an instance of art imitating life this video comes at a time when Red Cross disaster relief workers are responding to severe weather emergencies in communities across the nation.
“It gives us great pleasure to be able to work with a wonderful organization like the American Red Cross because of the humanitarian service it provides to this country-and around the world.” said Gary LeVox, lead singer of the band.
The video depicts Red Cross disaster relief workers providing comfort and emergency assistance to neighbors in the aftermath of a disaster.
Just in 2008, your local American Red Cross of Greater Grand Rapids has provided compassionate care to hundreds of people in our community that have been affected by disasters. Disasters happen each day in our community and it is essential that those in our community get prepared. It is the hope of your local Red Cross that those in our community will follow in the footsteps of those like the Rascal Flatts to help support their local Red Cross and the services and assistance we offer.
