Share Your Red Cross Story

Your story is our story. Share it now.

Hearts open, sleeves up, all in. The American Red Cross is a place where a complete stranger becomes your companion, gives you shelter from a raging storm, offers words of comfort in a crisis, or even helps save your life. Through the care of ordinary people, we can do extraordinary things. Your story is what has, and continues, to define us.

The family displaced by a wildfire who found shelter with the Red Cross. A citizen who saved the life of another using Red Cross first aid training. A military service member who received an urgent message from home through Red Cross Emergency Messages. A hospital patient who receives lifesaving blood, collected by the Red Cross. There are so many stories of compassion in action that have yet to be told.

We invite you to share your own Red Cross story today!
