red crosses for katrina

back in september of 2005, major league baseball and the major league baseball players' association teamed with the red cross to raise money for relief efforts benefitting the victims of hurricane katrina.  red cross stickers were added to players' helmets - you may have seen them on some cards in 2006, like this fleer ultra chris shelton card
this topps john rodriguez card
and this upper deck jason botts card
i don't consider these part of my memorial patch collection (botts is wearing the johnny oates memorial patch, by the way), but felt it was worth recognizing the red cross helmet stickers in case anyone was wondering.

I didn't know this was a thing. I'll have to look out for some...
