Last week, we asked if anyone had started preparing for hurricane season. We know 42 days sounds like a lot, but time tends to get away with us. The State of Texas seems to agree with us because they're waiving sales tax on emergency items this weekend April 23-25. This is the best time to build your emergency kit, prepare for bad weather, and make a plan. Read our advice below and then start prepping!

A bit of Titanic and Red Cross History for your Friday night.

A bit of Titanic and Red Cross History for your Friday night.

On this day in 1912, the RMS Titanic tragically sank just four days into its journey after crashing into an iceberg. The Red Cross was called to help, providing medical care, clothing, transportation and financial support.

According to this disaster report, nearly 200 families had traveled with all of their belongings to start a new life and sadly, lost everything they owned. Here are some of their stories:

👩🏻 No. 40: A 19-year-old girl and factory worker, lost her baggage and money. She suffered from shock and exposure. She is the sole supporter of her widowed mother. The Committee placed a trust fund to support her and her mother until her health was restored.

🧒🏼👧🏼 No. 489: Two children, 13 and 10 years old, traveled alone to join their mother in Florida. Their father was in France and they lost their clothing and money.

👨🏾‍👧🏾 No. 229: A laborer with his 4-year-old daughter were returning to Illinois from visiting family in Europe. They suffered shock and exposure and lost their belongings and money. They received clothing, financial assistance and additional support.

🤱🏽 No. 189: A mother with her infant child was traveling to join her husband in Pennslyvania. She lost all of her belongings but received help in the form of clothing, furniture and additional assistance.

#DYK? April is National Volunteer Month! Honestly, we can't think of a better celebration after Red Cross Month. We know we keep repeating ourselves but 90% of the work done by the Red Cross is done by volunteers. We hope we celebrate them every day but this month we want to continue introducing you to the amazing volunteers in the Texas Gulf Coast Region.

Ahora que marzo llega a su fin y el Mes de la Cruz Roja llega a su fin, queremos agradecer sinceramente a todos los que apoyan a la Cruz Roja a través del voluntariado, la donación, la donación de sangre, la asistencia a capacitaciones de RCP o simplemente apoyándonos a través de las redes sociales. Este año, el Día de la Donación cayó el día después de que tornados mortales pasaran por nuestro estado. Los tejanos necesitaban el apoyo de la Cruz Roja y muchos de ustedes dieron un paso al frente. De eso se trata: unirnos para prevenir y aliviar el sufrimiento humano. ❤️

As March comes to an end and Red Cross Month comes to a close, we wanted to extend a sincere thanks to everyone who supports the Red Cross through volunteering, donating, giving blood, attending CPR trainings, or simply supporting us through social media. This year, Giving Day fell the day after deadly tornadoes came through our state. Texans needed Red Cross support and so many of you stepped forward. That is what we're all about: coming together to prevent and alleviate human suffering. ❤️
