Sandra Bullock may have stolen the hearts of people everywhere with her incredible acting talent and charismatic personality, but she recently reminded us why it’s so easy to love her. Despite living a life of luxury amidst the glitz and glamor of Hollywood, she understands the importance of community and the vital role it plays during times of disaster.
Bullock herself owns a home in Texas and has been a long-time supporter of the American Red Cross, so it comes as little to no surprise that she would make such an incredible contribution to a cause so near and dear to her.
Elizabeth Penniman, Vice President of Communications for American Red Cross National Headquarters said, “This is an incredible gift. We’re so thankful. It’s times like this when we do receive such an incredible amount of support. Especially during times of disaster, people see what’s happening in Texas and our hearts all go out to them. Having someone like Sandra Bullock make this kind of commitment, it helps bring people together and open their hearts and be even more generous.”
While some still allow the political division in this country to hinder their ability to help those in need, Bullock’s thoughts on the subject are that, “There are no politics in eight feet of water. There are human beings in eight feet of water….I’m just grateful I can do it. We all have to do our part.”
