Every day, people in our community and around the world face emergencies, big and small – From survivors of more frequent and intense natural disasters, to patients in need of lifesaving blood, to military families in crisis, the Red Cross is there. By making a gift to the Red Cross this Giving Tuesday, you are fueling our vital mission of alleviating human suffering when help can’t wait.
In a disaster, children and families often lose their home and are left exposed to the elements. $25 can provide 5 warm blanketsto protect them from the cold and help them sleep comfortably in emergency shelters.
Give a gift to make sure no family goes hungry after a disaster strikes by supporting our shelter kitchens and mobile feeding through emergency response vehicles. $50 can provide a hot meal and snacks to 50 people after a disaster.
Give a gift to show our heroes and veterans you care. Help volunteers warmly welcome service members and veterans at medical facilities. Your gift of $145 can provide 20 kits filled with toiletries and other essentials to make them feel at home.
When disaster strikes, parents can lose everything — including essential they need to keep their babies healthy in the aftermath while staying at an emergency shelter. $160 can provide a crib and infant care supplies for a family in need, including formula, diapers and more.
Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood — a mother giving birth, a child with cancer, a neighbor who has been in an accident and countless others. $200 can help ensure that the life-saving gift of blood will be available whenever and wherever it is needed.
Emergencies can force families to leave their homes with nothing but the clothes on their backs. $250 can provide a full day of emergency shelter for 5 people impacted by disaster, including 3 meals, 2 blankets, 1 cot, snacks and personal hygiene supplies.
Help families affected by disasters around the world. A gift of $500 can provide four families with a complete emergency kit. These kits each provide a family of five with hygiene supplies, blankets, tarps, water containers, a kitchen set and a crank-powered lamp, radio and charger.
