You don’t need a cape or super powers to be a Hero! Online Heroes for the American Red Cross is a grassroots fundraising and awareness campaign that gives you the chance to make a big, lasting difference — and to be recognized for it, too! If you choose to become a Hero, you pledge to raise $1,000 for the American Red Cross.

Think you’re up for the challenge? Read on to find out more!

Online Heroes offers the chance to work within the local community, spreading the word about the services the American Red Cross provides, and raising money to support local needs for disaster relief, health and safety education, and more. You’ll be able to work with businesses, organizations, individuals, and even schools, to help raise money for your local Red Cross. You can go as big or as little as you’d like. You might consider hosting a bake sale, organizing a car wash or an on-air drive, or even a walk or run to benefit your Online Heroes Campaign—be creative and have fun!
