Trace Adkins is now a spokesperson for the Red Cross. He will help the organization with the 2012 American Red Cross Holiday Giving Campaign by encouraging people to donate blood, send cards to members of the military, and to give money.
Adkins has a special connection with the Red Cross. They were there to help when his own house burned down in June of 2011. He says:
"They were there, and were making sure my wife and kids were alright, and that everything was being taken care of. Then, they kept firefighters with sandwiches and plenty of water. It was amazing to me."
He went on to talk about how the Red Cross helps with huge disasters and also with local issues. One of his favorite parts of the campaign is the support to the troops. Adkins has made multiple trips to perform for the troops overseas.
