WASHINGTON, May 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Legendary music producer and entertainment icon Quincy Jones is mobilizing assistance for survivors of the catastrophic earthquake that struck China and the deadly cyclone that swept through Myanmar.

"This is a critical time for the survivors of the earthquake in China and cyclone in Myanmar, which devastated lives, homes and dreams," said Jones. "By contributing to the American Red Cross, people can help their neighbors around the world get back on their feet and give them greater hope for the future."

Since the quake hit, the American Red Cross has been supporting relief efforts of the Red Cross Society in China, which has over 35,000 employees and volunteers on the ground providing assistance and care to survivors. The American Red Cross is also helping survivors in Myanmar by providing financial assistance and delivering relief supplies - such as tarps, insecticide-treated bed nets, and other emergency items. As of May 23, six relief flights carrying American Red Cross relief supplies had arrived in country.

Already, the American Red Cross has contributed more than $12 million in financial assistance for these two disasters, and will provide additional relief through financial support, emergency supplies and relief workers, as needed.

"We are deeply grateful to Mr. Jones for supporting our efforts to help people in China and Myanmar," said David Meltzer, senior vice president, International Services for the American Red Cross. "Through his compassion, Mr. Jones is demonstrating the same leadership and humanitarian spirit that has earned him so much respect in the entertainment industry, and his efforts will directly improve people's lives in their time of need."
