Did you know that March 28th is the American Red Cross Giving Day?
On this day, you and I can make a difference in the lives of so many families by joining other Red Cross supporters for a special day of giving. This year’s goal is to help 25,000 families. In order to reach their goal, the American Red Cross needs all of us. So I want to thank you for helping these families and spreading the word right now.
Thank You For Helping
Did you know that nearly every eight minutes, the American Red Cross meets a family that has lost everything to a home fire or other disaster—the roof over their heads, their clothes, their most cherished possessions?
Sometimes when we look at these type statistics and see so much devastation, we begin feeling overwhelmed by such a widespread need and may even feel helpless, as if what we have to provide couldn’t put a dent in the vast amount of supplies and funds needed during such tragedies.
But with the organized help of the American Red Cross, your donation, whether great or small, can make a huge impact to provide help during those first devastating hours. It takes all of us to make a difference. And one by one, dollar by dollar, we can make an even greater impact to reach our neighbors and others in need.
That’s why all donations make a big difference. Did you know that your gift of just $88.50 can provide a family with a day’s worth of food, plus blankets and other essentials? That’s less than what my family can spend on a night at the movies! And the American Red Cross can take our donations and stretch every penny to make a huge difference in the lives of many families when they need it the most.
For years, the American Red Cross has been serving our communities during emergencies to provide comfort, support, and basic necessities to families. Their mission is to “aspire to turn compassion into action” and they continue providing these services through volunteers and simple donations from people like you.
