LifeWave Makes $5,000 Donation to the Red Cross

On Wednesday, May 25, LifeWave distributor Thomas Burke presented a $5,000 check to the Greater Palm Beach Area Chapter of the American Red Cross on behalf of LifeWave at a Red Cross benefit event in West Palm Beach, Fla. The donation will go toward disaster relief efforts in the Southeast and Midwest regions of the United States, which have been stricken by devastating storms and floods since March 31.

LifeWave has a long history of supporting the Red Cross. In 2005, we donated patches to aid victims and relief workers dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. That same year, Lifewave members made monetary donations which were matched by the company for a total of $25,000 for the Red Cross, United Way and Salvation Army, with the bulk of that going to the Red Cross. Five years later, LifeWave became a Red Cross Storm Partner, allowing us to work directly with the organization to serve as a resource during times of disaster.

In January 2010, LifeWave partnered with the Red Cross to donate a supply of patches to help victims of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti that month. The patches were administered by a group of doctors and nurses who were trained in patch protocols and were given enough supply for 6,000 applications.

Last year, we also made a $5,000 monetary donation to support general disaster relief and lifesaving programs.

We look forward to continuing our support for our community in the future, and we are honored to partner with the Red Cross to deliver help where it is needed.
