"We're talking about folks that are disaster responders, first responders, medical folks, just a Good Samaritan, blood donors.  But it's a great time to recognize those folks who give from their hearts, not because they have to, but because they want to, " said Amy Canterbury, Regional CEO, American Red Cross.
