DES MOINES, Iowa - The American Red Cross has launched a program encouraging farmers across the state to donate a portion of their crop.

The purpose of the Gift of Grain project is to donate grain to local and global communities who have had a recent disaster or who need help. Iowa produces 55-million tons of grain each year.

Red Cross volunteer, Twanta Staten, says “My father was a farmer and he didn`t have the time or money to give but he had the commodity. He would share a portion of his bounty and that`s what we`re hoping farmers here in Iowa do.”

Cash donations also will help support the armed forces and the organizations blood donation and distribution and health and safety courses.

The Red Cross has registered 600 co–op facilities across the state who are accepting donations; they can also be made online on the organizations website.

There is no deadline for donations.

    Give the gift of high level health to yourself, your loved ones and friends! The micronized natural detox mineral in powder form called Zeolite is proven to safely remove both heavy metals and radiation from the body! Detoxing is very important if you have been exposed to mercury from silver amalgam dental fillings, lead paint, lead dust and other heavy metals in you’re working and living environment. Exposure to both toxic heavy metals and radiation from Pacific Ocean fish and sea food should also be removed from the body for better health. Zeolite is superior to all other heavy metal and radiation detoxes because zeolite takes the toxins all the way out of the body with releasing any of these toxins back into the body as other detoxes often do to make people feel ill while detoxing! High quality zeolite is easy to take with juice or water because it mixes well and its tasteless! Zeolite is without question a wonderful gift to give to yourself and to your loved ones! For more information do a simple search for the single word Zeolite.
