"Want to be a Hero for the Red Cross? You don’t need a cape or fancy underpants! Heroes is a four week fundraising and awareness campaign that gives you the chance to make a big difference to your community – and be recognized for it, too.
Heroes pledge to raise $1,000 each for the Red Cross during the month of March. You can take on the challenge as an individual, a work place, or an organization.
Here’s how it works. Sign up online or contact your local Red Cross office. Then start talking to your friends on Facebook, your fellow workers, your church group or school mates. Get them excited and start raising money.
Of course, you will be helping the Red Cross provide a safer and healthier community to live in – but there are also personal benefits.
Every individual Hero and each Hero Team will appear in a full page, color ad in your regional paper.
The top fundraiser & top fundraising team will win two Round-trip tickets on SouthWest Airlines to anywhere they fly – NO BLACKOUT DATES!
Come join us – you’ve got what it takes to be a hero!
