If you’re passionate about helping people and looking for a volunteer opportunity with a visionary humanitarian organization, you can make a difference with the American Red Cross of Atlanta. Adults and teenagers (aged 15-17) are encouraged to apply and engage in meaningful opportunities for education, training and community service.
You don’t need a special reason to give blood. You just need your own reason. Maybe you were asked by a friend or relative, or maybe you believe it's the right thing to do. Whatever your reason, the need for blood donors is constant, and your contribution is important for a healthy and reliable blood supply. You'll also feel great knowing you've helped change a life!
Your donation powers the Red Cross response to an average of more than 60,000 disasters every year nationwide, providing shelter, food, emotional support and other necessities to those affected. By making a charitable donation to the Red Cross, you are there for millions of people who face emergencies every year and help as they rebuild their lives.
Host a charity stream by playing your favorite video games while raising life-saving funds to help those in need. You can also fundraise your own way by energizing your community through celebrating a special occasion or being creative to help to those in need. Click a button below to get started!
