Actor and comedian David Spade shines in his heart of gold with the American Red Cross. With the aftermath of tornadoes that have ripped through the United States on April 27-28, Spade made a hefty donation of $200,000 in support of the American Red Cross’ tornado disaster relief operations.
Killing hundreds of people ,stranding thousands and leaving behind many people homeless, the tornadoes that wreaked havoc in the midwestern and southeastern US has led the Rules of Engagement star to extend a generous hand in the efforts of the Red Cross to reach out to affected people who are in desperate need of assistance.
The 46 yr old brother-in-law of famous designer Kate Spade, has long been a supporter of the Red Cross over the years. He is an American Red Cross National Cabinet member, assisting the agency with it’s relief efforts through his personal donations and money raised from his shows. This enabled Spade to contribute $50,000 to the states of Kentucky and Tennessee in July of last year.
In a statement, The American Red Cross has expressed their deep appreciation for the actor’s unfailing and selfless generous support through donating his time, talent and money to assist those in need.
Spade hopes that his move will encourage others to join him in his efforts to support the American Red Cross . Apparently, Charlie Sheen also shares this advocacy as the actor has launched a website in support of raising money for disaster relief for tornado victims. His website, TorpedosAgainstTornados.com promises to send any donor who contributes $100 or more, a personally autographed baseball from the controversial 45 year old actor.
