Heidi Teams Up With The American Red Cross (VIDEO)

My annual Halloween party was held a few weeks later than usual this year due to Hurricane Sandy here in New York City, but we still made it happen! This year, it was very important to me that it benefited a special cause--the American Red Cross's hurricane relief efforts.

The American Red Cross is a non-profit organization that helps people in need by sheltering, feeding and providing emotional support to victims of disasters, solely depending on volunteers and the generosity of the American public. I have been a member of the National Celebrity Cabinet of Red Cross since 2004.
