The first American Red Cross Giving Day

The first American Red Cross Giving Day celebrates all the good that the Red Cross and its volunteers do each and every day, and to ensure the Red Cross is there for those who have been affected by disasters or emergencies. The 24-hour event is designed to rally the public to support the Red Cross mission to ensure that it can deliver help and hope to people in need.

As you know, even when there is no disaster in the news, the Red Cross is still working hard to help people across the country facing emergencies and disaster situations. And, the Red Cross couldn’t be there to help without the generous support of the American public – and you.

Did you know…

  • That nearly 200 times a day, the American Red Cross helps a family affected by a home fire or other disaster?
  • Or that, the Red Cross needs 15,000 blood donations every day?
  • Or that, every day the Red Cross provides nearly 1,000 services to military members and their families?
  • Or that, with the help of partners, the Red Cross helps vaccinate 308,000 children a day, globally, against measles or rubella?
  • Or that, on average, 15,500 people a day learn how to save a life through Red Cross health and safety training and mobile app downloads?
