Interview with Celebrity Cabinet Member, Elisabeth Rohm

Hello everyone! I found this post on the National blog and thought it was a great story so please enjoy! Also, check out the rest of our 2010 National Celebrity Cabinet Members! How cool!

Tonic: What cause is nearest and dearest to your heart? How did you first get involved?

ER: My cause is really the American Red Cross, and I’m incredibly passionate about it, and I’ve been involved for over five years. Basically, I do everything that my mother tells me to do (laughs), and now that I have a kid I really do understand the power of that. The Red Cross had reached out to me in 2005 to participate in a campaign in New York, but I got involved because I had a personal experience with them, and my mother basically told me that I owed them for all that they had done for her.

When I was in high school my mother had a house in Missouri that had a fire and the roof was severely damaged, and she was very financially challenged at the time and couldn’t afford to get it repaired and The Red Cross stepped in and replaced her roof. I just feel, from the ground level, whether it’s a hurricane, a fire, floods, the Red Cross and its volunteers really provide the basic necessities in a time of crisis and need. They do their job.
