National Day of Giving

Help us Show the Many Faces of Red Cross

On Dec. 2, the Red Cross will participate in #GivingTuesday, an online movement celebrating a national day of giving, which encourages businesses, individuals and families to support charitable activities. This year, the Red Cross L.A. Region wants to hear from you to help promote the Red Cross story.

#GivingTuesday is about encouraging people to give back to their community in any way they can, whether through volunteer work or charitable giving.

As part of #GivingTuesday, people around the world will be posting their #unselfie, a picture that tells the story of how you give back to your community. All of our volunteers are encouraged to share their #unselfie from now through Dec. 2 by posting to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using hashtags #GivingTuesday and #unselfie. You can post either individual or group shots, but try to include a Red Cross symbol somewhere in the picture. You can also visit our Facebook Page now and use one of the #unselfie photos we made for you.

Some examples of #unselfie shots might be of you:

  • Volunteering at a Red Cross activity (disaster response, taking a CPR class, preparedness education, etc.)
  • Donating blood at your local Red Cross chapter
  • Donating funds online via the Red Cross website or Facebook or Twitter.
  • (Or use one of our pre-made #unselfie photos showing Red Cross activities.)
  • Encourage Others to Donate to the Red Cross through #donate technology

    The National Day of Giving helps raise awareness and funds for many different charities as people turn their attention to giving back. This #GivingTuesday, we are excited to announce our partnership with GoodWorld, the creators of #donate technology.

    Our Facebook page and Twitter handle are now active with #donate technology, which means you also can give to Red Cross LA from your Facebook or Twitter account. Go to www.goodworld.me to register with GoodWorld so you can #donate for life.

    On Facebook, you can comment on any post on the Red Cross LA page “#donate” (dollar amount). (Example: “I #donate $25”) The Red Cross will reply to your comment thanking you for your donation. If you have not previously registered, the “thank you” reply will also include a link for your one-time, 60-second registration.

    On Twitter, you can tweet “#donate (dollar amount) @RedCrossLA” (Example: “I #donate $25 @RedCrossLA”). We will tweet a “thank you” reply for your donation. If you have not previously registered, the tweet will also provide a link for your one-time, 60-second registration.

    Thank you for helping us show the many faces of the Red Cross and its mission.
