We at the American Red Cross would like to thank everyone for their support on #GivingTuesday to bring comfort and hope to families in need.
Every 8 minutes, someone affected by disaster is helped because of generous donations to the Red Cross. These donations directly help provide people with necessities like shelter, food, relief supplies, emotional support, and other assistance.
In addition to responding to disasters, the generosity of donors also powers the Red Cross mission to:
- Train and provide information to nearly 5.9 million people in first aid, water safety and other skills that help save lives.
- Provide nearly 391,000 services to service members, veterans and civilians through our Hero Care Network.
- Collect nearly 4.9 million units of blood from more than 2.8 million volunteer donors. These donations are then processed into about 6.75 million blood products for transfusion to meet the needs of patients at about 2,600 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country.
- Help more than 181 million people outside the U.S. each year through disaster management and disease prevention activities.
On behalf of the individuals and families that we serve each day, thank you for your support to Give Something that Means Something.
