The American Red Cross has received a generous gift of $95,000 from United in Movement and NOBULL to support International Services. The donation will help the Red Cross continue to deliver its lifesaving mission due to this public health emergency.
United in Movement and NOBULL’s generous contribution will be used to ensure that the Red Cross is able to provide critical relief services to people affected by disasters big and small even during the COVID-19 outbreak. This includes equipping and training volunteers and staff during this outbreak to safely provide food, shelter, comfort, and relief supplies to people affected by disasters of all types. Donations may also be used to invest in technology and training to make sure we can provide counseling, financial assistance, and other relief services virtually.
Initially, United in Movement’s focus was to unite the community through movement and raise funds to help local gyms and small businesses remain open, but the support they received quickly outgrew their mission. After realizing they had the capacity to help more individuals, they shifted their efforts to help those around the world.
They partnered with various CrossFit groups and fitness related companies, such as NOBULL, to expand their reach. In their partnership, NOBULL created a shoe that when purchased, proceeds would go to a charity with an international footprint. What resonated with them the most about the Red Cross and their decision to donate, is the worldwide footprint in delivering relief to those who need it the most.
Generous donations from the community and corporate partners like United in Movement and NOBULL, enable the Red Cross to prepare communities for disasters big and small, respond whenever and wherever disasters occur and help families during the recovery process.
