“I have an almost complete disregard of precedent, and a faith in the possibility of something better. It irritates me to be told how things have always been done. I defy the tyranny of precedent. I go for anything new that might improve the past.” – Clara Barton
As the world seems to be changing more and more rapidly, it can be difficult to keep up. Here at the Red Cross, I am grateful for staff and volunteers who make it their business to do what we do more efficiently, to better serve our clients and those who use and benefit from our services and programs. We follow along the lines of Red Cross founder Clara Barton in defying the way “things have always been done” to find new and better ways to teach CPR or provide disaster assistance; to connect a military family or give a free ride to a senior who needs to get to dialysis.
What are ways you’d like to see services and programs improved or changed? Leave your ideas and thoughts in the comments.
