Ready 365

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 struck by a home fire. We help a deployed soldier get home for the birth of his or her son. We give the child who has lost everything the immediate psychological care she needs and a toy to call her own.

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.

Message from the Chair

Deborah Moessner Headshot - Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Kentucky

Deborah Moessner - Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Kentucky

“I am honored to have the opportunity to serve as the Campaign Chair for the Ready 365 program. The daily work of the American Red Cross is often unseen and may be taken for granted in our community. Yet, in the middle of the night when a family has lost everything to a home fire, the American Red Cross is there.

They are there to help a soldier get home for the birth of their child. They are there to provide blood to a child who is battling cancer. Every nine minutes, the Red Cross brings help and hope to those in need. Please join the expanding list of companies from across the region by contributing to Ready 365.”
