    The following message is from Gail McGovern, President and CEO, and Pam Farr, National Chair of Volunteers:



    We are excited to share with you an initiative soon to be announced by the White House that will help us attract new volunteers to the Red Cross.



    Next week, President Obama will issue a call for a nationwide “Summer of Service” to meet community needs and make voluntary service a way of life for everyone. The initiative will officially kick off on June 22 and will run for 81 days, culminating on September 11 as a National Day of Service. The White House has launched a web site, Welcome to Serve.gov, as a one-stop-shop to help people find volunteer opportunities in their area.

    What are you crying about?

    What did Obama tell you to forget about?

    Why are you guys so hypersensitive and whining about everything?

    Do you take offense at the idea of "Summer of Service" and donating blood, and picking up trash at the local park, and volunteering as a mentor for young kids? Is it all that bad that our country is encouraging people to do this?

    It's not mandatory! Good and Heavenly Mohammed!
