It’s the last day to make a 2013 tax-deductible gift to Direct Relief and help provide medical aid to people in need in all 50 U.S. states and around the world.

This year, thanks to supporters like you, Direct Relief was able to help more people than ever before—delivering $354 million in life-saving medicines and medical supplies to partner healthcare providers. This involvement translated into treatment being available for hundreds of thousands of people displaced by emergencies, and many more in need of care in situations that didn’t make the news.

Be a part of this life-saving work by donating online or by making a donation over the phone at (805) 964-4767. Checks can be mailed to Direct Relief, 6100 Wallace Becknell Road, Santa Barbara, CA 93117. Also, make sure to check if your employer participates in their matching gift program, which may double or even triple your gift.

The video above was generously produced by Direct Relief board member, Joanna Kerns, who has worked for 40 years in theater, television and film as an actress, director and producer. She is probably best known for the role of Maggie Seaver in the long-running sitcom, Growing Pains.

Giving is Good Medicine

You don't have to donate. That's why it's so extraordinary if you do.
