It Starts with the Desire to Help People in Need

Every day, the American Red Cross assists people who face emergencies. We secure food and lodging for the family stuck by a home fire. We help a deployed soldier get home for the birth of his son. We provide blood to the child battling cancer.

We have prevented and relieved suffering, one day at a time, for more than 130 years. In that time, we have served millions of people. They lived in small towns and big cities across the United States and around the world.

Wherever they were, they had one thing in common. They knew where to turn during moments of great need. They knew that – 365 days a year – the American Red Cross was ready to help. When you join the Ready 365 Giving Program, our premium membership group, you enable us to provide comfort and hope when it’s needed most.
