Shopping Online? Give Something That Means Something

Support the American Red Cross 2014 Holiday Campaign

Are you one of the millions doing their holiday shopping online today? Looking for that perfect gift? Why not visit to give a gift that means something to those in need during the upcoming holiday season.

The American Red Cross 2014 Holiday Campaign is in full swing and shoppers can go through the online Red Cross gift catalog and purchase a variety of symbolic gifts in the name of the people on their gift list.

The holiday gift catalog includes items such as:

  • Hot meals, a warm blanket or a full day of shelter for a victim of disaster
  • A comfort kit for an injured service member containing things such as a robe, shower shoes, toiletries and a music gift card
  • Infant care supplies for babies caught up in a disaster, items such as formula, diapers and more
  • Vaccinations to help people, especially children, around the world avoid contracting what can be a deadly disease
  • 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:

  • Making a financial donation to the Red Cross
  • Scheduling an appointment to give blood
  • Giving the gift of your time by becoming a Red Cross volunteer
  • 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.
