You need only be a fan of life to love this book! – Tom

George F. Allen served the Commonwealth of Virginia for over twenty years as Governor, in both bodies of the United States Congress, and as a Delegate holding Thomas Jefferson’s seat in the Virginia General Assembly. His wife, Susan Allen, is an active member of the Board of the American Red Cross in the National Capital Region. “I selected the Red Cross in the National Capital Region because of their truly caring, energetic teamwork in helping all people in need when disasters occur”, said Allen.

“Preparation was one of my father’s fundamental keys to success for his teams and it sums up what the Red Cross does in communities: it teaches citizens how to prepare for disaster with life saving skills. When disaster does strike, the Red Cross mobilizes its volunteers and resources and truly helps people in need.”

“We are honored that Governor Allen chose the Red Cross to benefit through the sale of his book and we are delighted that he has found such an innovative way to help us,” said Linda Mathes, American Red Cross CEO in the National Capital Region. “We are grateful for his ongoing support and respect all that he and the First Lady have done for our community.”

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
