Milagro Foundation helps make it possible for the Red Cross to fulfill its humanitarian mission

Due to the disastrous earthquake in Christchurch, the scheduled March 22 Santana show was cancelled. Carlos Santana’s Milagro Foundation is donating $10,000 to the New Zealand Red Cross to help aide the humanitarian efforts.

"While I live a long way from Christchurch, I have been a resident of San Francisco and I understand the power of an earthquake," Carlos Santana said."It's still so hard to comprehend the tragedy that has happened there. The images I saw on television made me feel both grief and helplessness. So many people have been affected. I hope that everyone will do their part to help in whatever way they can to help. My thoughts are with all people affected in Christchurch by the earthquake. I am looking to return under better times."

The March 11 earthquake and Tsunami that hit Japan has spurred an enormous recovery operation. The Milagro Foundation is also supporting the efforts of the American Red Cross in Japan by donating $20,000 to assist in the recovery.
