It’s almost time to say goodbye to 2014 and many of us are thinking about New Year’s resolutions. The American Red Cross asks you give something that means something by making a tax-deductible donation to the Red Cross before the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve.
For many, making charitable contributions at the end of the year is part of their holiday tradition. The Red Cross depends on these end-of-year donations to provide hope, help and compassion to people in need and urges everyone to visit http://www.redcross.org/charitable-donations to see how they can support the Red Cross mission.
STILL TIME TO SHOP THE CATALOG You can still go to the 2014 Red Cross Holiday Gift Catalog and buy a symbolic gift. Your purchase will support the Red Cross mission of preventing and alleviating human suffering in the face of emergencies.
Does your family share a legacy of military service? If so, you can purchase a military comfort kit filled with a robe, shower shoes, toiletries and a music gift card for those who have been wounded.
Has the Red Cross assisted someone you know during a disaster? Your gift can provide food, shelter, comfort and hope to another person rebuilding their life a disaster. Donations can support warm blankets, hot meals or a toothbrush, soap and other essential personal care supplies for someone impacted by disaster.
For those with global interests, the Holiday Gift Catalog contains a number of gifts to bring Red Cross services to people in crisis overseas. These include vaccinations against deadly diseases or an emergency kit whichprovides a month of supplies for a family overseas—including a cooking set, toilet paper, toothbrushes, water containers and blankets.
The purchase of each catalog item 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.
Thousands of people turn to the Red Cross every year for help. What better way to end 2014 than by helping them through a donation to the American Red Cross. Please resolve to contribute to the Red Cross before the end of the year.
