Red Cross offers its own product line
It has been yet another disastrous year, which means the Red Cross has gotten a brisk workout. The latest was trying to ease the suffering during southern California's wild fires, and that means one more reason to help replenish the organization's reserves.

There is a way to help do that while acquiring some handy disaster-preparedness goods for yourself. The Red Cross began licensing products in 2006 and gets a cut of the sales.

...

On the higher end are the crank-charging emergency radios ranging from $50 to $60. Varying in price according to size, one version comes with AM/FM and shortwave radios and the other with AM/FM, TV and weather-channel bands. Both can charge a cell phone and have a flashlight, siren and blinking red light.

Good for a car trunk would be the Personal Emergency Preparedness kit, for $16.96. This includes emergency drinking water, a rain poncho, an emergency blanket, 2 hand warmers, a particulate mask, among other items all contained in a compact nylon backpack.

1. For sale at Target. No really.
My local Target has Red Cross products in the baby dept, the Auto Dept, the Camping Dept, and in Toiletries. Maybe some other areas I have not yet noticed.

Donations are way down with all charities. But hey, Exxon stockholders are making out just fine......
