Former Real Housewife of New York City turned Business Mogul, Bethenny Frankel is making a VERY generous donation to The Red Cross to support her fellow New Yorkers in the destruction left by Hurricane Sandy. Bethenny being a true New Yorker, didn’t hesitate to donate $50,000 right away to The American Red Cross for relief efforts. Not only did she make a donation, but her Skinnygirl Cocktails brand matched her donation and donated another $50,000 to the Red Cross and gave 5,000 Skinnygirl On-the-Go Bars to the New Jersey Red Cross to give out free, which is the equivalent to an additionalÂ $10,000 donation.
“Bethenny is an East Coast girl,” an insider told US Weekly, “and hopes the stream of donations from people all over America and the world will reach those affected, save more lives and help build back the East Coast. It is so important in times like this that we come together and help in any way we can.”
Bethenny also took to her Twitter to tell her more than one million followers how to help out, tweeting,Â “Please give back to the tri-state area that has given so much to usÂ @RedCrossÂ simply Txt REDCROSS 90999 to make a $10 donation.”
