Trace Adkins and his family benefited from the relief efforts of the Red Cross when their Nashville area home burned down in June 2011. That's a big reason Trace has signed on as the American Red Cross Holiday Campaign spokesman this year.
Trace considers himself very fortunate that none of his family members were hurt or lost in his house fire, but Trace knows that's not always the case. "From personal experience, I am supporting the Red Cross and their work to unite families and aid in times of need," says Trace.
There are several ways for people to give this holiday season, including monetary donations, sending cards to military personnel overseas, or giving blood. For further details, go to RedCross.org .
