"This is an incredible gift. We're so thankful. It's times like this when we do receive such an incredible amount of support. Especially during times of disaster, people see what's happening in Texas and our hearts all go out to them," said Elizabeth Penniman, Vice President of Communications for American Red Cross national headquarters. 

"Having someone like Sandra Bullock make this kind of commitment, it helps bring people together and open their hearts and be even more generous," Penniman added.
