Happy Holidays!

This historical American Red Cross poster was done by artist Jessie Wilcox Smith in 1918 as part of the year’s Red Cross membership Drive. Smith also illustrated for children’s books like “Little Women” and magazines such as “Good Housekeeping”. This 1918 poster helped boost Red Cross membership to more than 28 million by the close of that year.
