TIM McGRAW, RANDY TRAVIS, LONESTAR HELP RED CROSS

The American Red Cross has instituted a National Celebrity Cabinet – where celebrities volunteer for one year to promote awareness of the available services and activities of the organization.

This year, cabinet members include new member Randy Travis and second-year volunteers Lonestar and Tim McGraw.

"They help rebuild lives," says Dean Sams of Lonestar. "If [being famous] will help bring attention to the good work they do, then we're all for it. It's one of the coolest things we can do."

Tim McGraw is also excited to be a part of the program, for the second year in a row. "I was thrilled when I was invited to be a part of the Red Cross National Celebrity Cabinet for another year," he says. "I have always been very impressed by all the efforts and assistance the Red Cross has been able to provide to communities all over the world, especially in crisis situations. I feel honored to be able to help and give back whatever I can in assisting the Red Cross in their mission to save lives."
