Wanna Pay Less At Tax Time?

Aside from being New Year’s Eve, today is also the very last day to make a dent in your 2008 taxes.

That’s right, all you have to do is make a donation to the American Red Cross sometime today and you can take a tax deduction!

Just to give you an idea of how your donation can help:

  • $25 provides five blankets at an emergency shelter
  • $75 can cover a doctor’s visit for a person injured in a disaster
  • $350 will provide emergency food and shelter for 25 disaster victims for one day
  • $2,500 deploys one Emergency Response Vehicle and drivers to a disaster relief operation
  • $3,200 provides yearly maintenance and fuel for one Emergency Response Vehicle

Your gift really can make a difference — not just on your taxes but in peoples’ lives. If you’re interested in giving today, visit www.oregonredcross.org/donate.
