In the wake of historic flooding fueled by Hurricane Harvey and Irma, Opinions 4 Good (Op4G) announced the donation of $2,500 to the American Red Cross to support immediate relief and rebuilding efforts of communities affected by the recent hurricanes.

 “When disaster strikes it takes the effort of many to help a community in crisis.” Said Op4G President & CEO Frank Nappo. “The Op4G opportunity allows people from all corners of the U.S to instantaneously come together and digitally support a cause such as the Hurricane Harvey and Irma relief efforts by the American Red Cross.”59a0b46a5e116.image.jpg

The American Red Cross is one of 350+ non-profits that Op4G members can donate their survey incentives towards. The $2,500 donation was generated by 700+ active Op4G survey takers who selected the “American Red Cross” as their benefitting non-profit.

As Hurricane Irma continues a catastrophic path through the Caribbean islands and United States the response from volunteers reminds us often people are willing to help at a moment’s notice. The effects of the recent storms will be felt by communities for many months and years to come. Opinions 4 Good continues their commitment to volunteerism and benefitting non-profits in times of need by encouraging people to sign up and become members or donate directly to the American Red Cross.
