Every eight minutes, the American Red Cross helps someone in need. During this holiday season, we ask you to remember those who count on the Red Cross and bring them hope through your donation to the annual Red Cross Holiday Campaign.
HOLIDAY GIFT CATALOG One way a person can support the Red Cross is to visit the Red Cross Holiday Giving Catalog at www.redcross.org/gifts and select a symbolic gift for someone on their holiday list. The gift is tax-deductible and will support Red Cross programs like these:
Catalog items include things like infant care kits for babies in emergency shelters, comfort kits for wounded warriors, or emergency kits that provide a month of supplies for a family overseas involved in a disaster. Catalog purchases come with greeting cards shoppers can send to a friend or loved one, letting them know a donation has been made in their name.
The purchase of each item from the 2014 Holiday Gift Catalog is a tax-deductible contribution that supports the mission of the Red Cross. The catalog gifts are contributions toward a Red Cross program area, not a donation to a specific project or item. Those who participate will receive free gifts such as a Red Cross Water Bottle for a donation of $100 or more or a Red Cross fleece blanket for a donation of $200 or more.
Other ways you can give something that means something include:
Support the American Red Cross 2014 Holiday Campaign and remember all those who look to the Red Cross for help – give something that means something.
