Every day, the American Red Cross assists people who face emergencies. We secure food and lodging for the family struck by a home fire. We help a deployed soldier get home for the birth of his son. We give the child who has lost everything the immediate psychological care she needs and a toy to call her own.
We have prevented and alleviated suffering, one day at a time, for more than 130 years.
In that time, we have served millions of people. They lived in small towns and big cities across the United States and around the world.
Wherever they were, they had one thing in common. They knew where to turn during moments of great need. They knew that – 365 days a year – the American Red Cross was ready to help. When you join the Ready 365 Giving Program, our premium membership group, you enable us to provide comfort and hope when it’s needed most.
