Reflecting on the unfortunate event, Jean Shafiroff is proud to be supporting the tireless efforts of the Red Cross and Humane Society who have been in action on the ground for more than two weeks. Jean and Josh Lockwood, CEO of the Red Cross of Greater New York, passionately encouraged continued financial support and volunteerism at the NYC branch of the Red Cross. While the wildfires are now contained, the devastation has displaced over 52,000 residents of California during a time when families should be celebrating the holidays. Donations made by Jean Shafiroff, and guests in attendance, help enable the Red Cross to respond to and help Californians recover from the catastrophe.
Shafiroff‘s passion for giving knows no bounds and she remains readily prepared to make a significant effort or gracious contribution towards nonprofit organizations and a plethora of causes. A philanthropist, activist, humanitarian, author of Successful Philanthropy: How to Make A Life by What You Give and spokesperson for several charitable causes, the spectrum of Jean’s philanthropic work includes, but is not limited to, improving the lives of underserved populations, women’s rights, and well-being, health care, animal welfare and resources for children in need.
