Help Around the Globe – Give Something that Means Something


Give something that means something this holiday season and help the American Red Cross bring hope to people in some of their darkest hours – someone who has lost everything in a disaster, a hospital patient who needs blood, or a military family facing an emergency.

Please support the American Red Cross 2016 Holiday Giving Campaign and give a gift of support, strength and hope to someone who needs it while honoring someone in your life.

Honor friends and family with a unique gift. Your donation is a tax-deductible contribution to the Red Cross. Simply choose unique gifts in honor of the people on your list; send them a free holiday greeting or e-card to announce your gift and know your donation will help people when they need it most.


All around the world, the American Red Cross helps people in need. When disaster strikes in other countries, such as this year’s effects of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti, the American Red Cross is there, helping. We help families affected by war, disaster or civil unrest search for missing loved ones. The American Red Cross also works to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Through our participation in the Measles & Rubella Initiative, we have helped to vaccinate more than a billion children, reducing measles deaths across the globe.

Here’s just a sampling of the gifts you can give this holiday season:

  • Vaccinations save children's lives around the world. Help vaccinate a child overseas and provide protection for life. You can help educate families about the dangers of both measles and rubella, and provide the easy solution available to prevent the loss of an estimated 430 people every day, most of them children.
  • Give something that means something during this holiday season. Help the Red Cross support those in need here at home and around the globe.
