The American Red Cross Holiday Catalog is one way you can help people in need this holiday season while honoring a friend, family member or colleague with your financial donation. There are also other easy ways to support the Red Cross mission — including ways to give while you shop this holiday season.
AmazonSmile is proud to continue to feature the Red Cross this holiday season, giving its customers the opportunity to truly Give Something that Means Something. Through this ongoing, year-round program, customers may designate the Red Cross as their preferred charity, and AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of the price of each eligible item purchased at purchased at smile.amazon.com, or with AmazonSmile turned ON in the Amazon Shopping app.
Circle K Coastal Carolinas, West Coast and Florida Divisions are pleased to offer a continued partnership with their customers to raise funds year-round to support the services of the Red Cross. It is especially heartwarming to see the very generous response of their customers during the holiday season each year. Look for collection canisters at checkout to make a contribution.
PayPal is making it easy for customers to donate to the Red Cross this holiday season. When customers set the Red Cross as their favorite charity, they’ll have an opportunity to donate $1 to the Red Cross whenever they check out with PayPal. It’s an easy and convenient way to have a big impact. Visit our profile page on PayPal Giving Fund to set the Red Cross as your favorite charity.
Salesforce is proud to support the Red Cross this holiday season. Starting on #GivingTuesday and through December 31, our Salesforce Ohana — our employees, partners, customers and members of the communities we call home — can donate to the Red Cross mission on our donation site. All donations up to $50,000 will be matched, as we work together to give something that means something to those in need.
Verizon is supporting the Red Cross this holiday season through its Verizon UP rewards program. Verizon customers can join Verizon UP and claim a Red Cross Bonus Reward sent out every day in December for a $5 donation to the Red Cross. It’s simple and easy. Customers can access Verizon Up in the menu of the My Verizon app to redeem a new code every day.
For decades, Wells Fargo and its employees have helped the Red Cross prepare for critical needs ranging from blood drives and financial education to responding to disasters domestically and abroad. During the month of December, Wells Fargo will build upon this relationship by encouraging customers and employees to come together on social media in support of the Red Cross. Wells Fargo will donate $5 to the Red Cross for every post using the hashtag #WFGivesThanks, for a total donation of up to $1 million.* Social posts can thank front-line workers, teachers, military service members and others who have worked tirelessly during the pandemic, as a collective demonstration of gratitude for their efforts in providing hope and comfort at a time when our communities need it most. *Learn more here.
Additionally, Wells Fargo will work with the Red Cross and its Armed Forces program to unite military families this holiday season and in emergency situations all year-long. Support of veterans and military service members is at the core of Wells Fargo’s values, and the company is committed to empowering military communities to effectively navigate life’s transitions, achieve ongoing career and financial success, and positively affect their community.
