Today is the 4th Annual Red Cross Giving Day!
Giving Day is a 24-hour fundraising campaign supporting the work of the American Red Cross. Financial donations help provide hope and urgent relief such as food, blankets and other essentials to people who need it most.
Nearly every 8 minutes, the Red Cross meets a family that may have lost everything to a home fire or other disaster. Your donation can #help1family in the minutes, hours and days after a disaster.
There are 4 easy ways to get involved:
Financial donations are the quickest and easiest way to ensure people receive exactly what they need when they need it most. You can donate online at redcross.org/givingday or text REDCROSS to 90999 to give a $10 donation.

The need for blood is constant. Having blood on the shelves save lives when it is needed most. Sign-up to give blood at redcrossblood.org and encourage your friends and family to do the same.
