What’s better than Strawberry Shortcake?

Strawberry Shortcake served by Red Crossers, of course!

We’ll be at the Watsonville Strawberry Festival in Downtown Watsonville this August 1 & 2 from 10 AM to 7 PM, helping you get your shortcake fix.  $5.00 will get you a delicious strawberry shortcake served by our fantastic volunteers.

Plus, the Watsonville Strawberry Festival is an admission free event with music, arts and crafts, pie eating contests and more.  Come support your Red Cross and get all sugared up on one of Santa Cruz County’s most popular Red Crops (see what i did there?).



Silly Vampires, Blood is for the Red Cross!

Happy Friday, everyone.  This PSA wasn’t produced by the Red Cross, but boy is it entertaining.  And it includes a vampire, which I hear is quite the rage these days.  Check it out… and if you get a chance, search “Red Cross” on YouTube.  There are tons of awesome videos from our chapters around the globe.

Kitteh has a smart.

funny-pictures-cat-has-an-earthquake-drillThis kitty has it half right.

To be “Preparedness Geek Specific,” kitty should:

  • DROP to the ground (before the earthquake drops you!),
  • Take COVER by getting under a sturdy desk or table, and
  • HOLD ON to it until the shaking stops.

But, we still give the little guy props for covering his head, not running outside, AND for performing a drill so that he could plan for an emergency.

If there was an earthquake right now, do you know what you would do?

Youth Dance!

I’m only 27 years old, but I’m not even going to try to sound “hip” in this post.  All I know about new popular music is that there’s someone named Lady GaGa… and apparently she’s very popular.

Back in my day, The Presidents of the United States of America sang a little song about Peaches, and we liked it that way!
