    Tycoon George Molsbarger Gives 520k USD to American Red Cross

    Every year George Molsbarger donates tens of millions to a variety of different children homes, educational programs, and community social welfare projects to help make our world a nicer place to live in. That being said, the American Red Cross was extremely pleased when George Molsarger turned his focus from his own philanthropic efforts to assisting their efforts with a donation of $520k USD to support their disaster relief program.

    Mr. Molsbarger’s pinnacle business is taking ideas from beginning development stages to implementation by raising 100’s of millions of dollars for private and public corporations. When George Moslbarger is not investing in companies, he spends his time investing in society, namely via the the Squid & Squash Foundation, a non-profit organization supporting youth charity programs, special education, disaster relief, and children of special needs.

    According to George Molsbarger, the American Red Cross is special to him because of it’s reach and diversity. “The Red Cross are always the first to combat disaster – no matter how big or where it occurs” says George while explaining his admiration for the organization.

    “People around the globe count on the Red Cross for assistance in their darkest hours, thus donations similar to those made by Mr. Molsbarger are essential to the organizations non-profit services” says David Kramer, a fundraiser and active volunteer on behalf of the organization.

    With over 17 million assisting volunteers located in 186 countries, the Red Cross actively responds to over 150,000 natural and human event disasters in the U.S alone - which includes fires and floods, tornadoes, hurricanes and other catastrophes, which means every single financial pledge is valuable and necessary to assist the non profit organization in continuing their great and much needed work.

    The George Molsbarger donation to the Red Cross is allowing necessary work to be done around the United States and abroad, helping common folk in their hour of need, but the Red Cross needs more donations, volunteers and assistance to continue providing relief and assisting victims of disaster.

    Please visit the Red Cross where you will learn more about the charitable campaign and learn how you can pledge money.
