National Day of Giving

In early September, the American Red Cross launched a $100 million nationwide fundraising campaign called the Campaign for Disaster Relief: Disasters Change Lives. You Can Too. We are past the half-way point, raising more nearly $70 million in cash and pledges for the Campaign for Disaster Relief.

In support of our Campaign for Disaster Relief, there will be a National Day of Giving for the American Red Cross on Saturday, December 13. This campaign ensures that the Red Cross will continue to be there to provide disaster relief to the American people, whenever and wherever it is needed.

We still need the public’s support to reach our goal of $100 to replenish the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. On Saturday, December 13, the American Red Cross in your neighborhood will be asking for generous contributions in support of the Campaign for Disaster Relief, which allows the Red Cross to respond to victims of disasters across the country.

The Disaster Relief fund was depleted as a result of an active year of disasters-disasters like the severe flooding of the Central U.S. and the numerous hurricanes that made landfall the active hurricane season Your generous donations to the Disaster Relief Fund allows the Red Cross to mobilize volunteers who provide food, shelter and counseling to people who need it, whenever and wherever disasters occur. This campaign ensures that the Red Cross will continue to be there to provide disaster relief to the American people.

You can be a part of this compassionate service to communities around the country in several ways:

  • You can also use your cell phone to donate $5 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund by text messaging the keyword “GIVE” (4483) to “2HELP” (24357). You can send multiple donations depending on your carrier. Contributions will appear on monthly bills or be debited from a prepaid account balance. All applicable text rates apply.

We urgently need your support to reach our goal of $100 million which allows the Red Cross to provide food, shelter and counseling to people who need it. Your gift will help the victims of thousands of disasters across the country each year.

Thank you!
