American Red Cross Giving Day is celebrated on March 24th every year. This is a great opportunity for local communities to help families affected by some disasters and who urgently need the Red Cross services to be able to stand again.
Origin of American Red Cross Giving Day
From its establishment by Clara Barton on May 21, 1881, the American Red Cross always focus all attention on serving those in need. We were first chartered in 1900 and today are authorized by the federal government to provide services to members of the United States armed forces and their families in the United States and around the world. In 2021, the Red Cross will celebrate 140 years of charitable activities. Find out how we celebrate our anniversaries.
Even as the Red Cross try to meet the change demand, we remain true to those roots. Do you know nurses of the Red Cross who help American soldiers and civil war victims during World War I? In fact, as you have read, Red Cross employees and volunteers are still deployed with the US military. Maybe you take part in a class via the Red Cross, such as a first aid or swimming certificate. Did you know that we have been offering similar training since the early 1900s? Have you ever donated blood? The Red Cross launched its first national blood program in the 1940s and supply more than 40% of blood products in the country.
Throughout its long history, the Red Cross has paid attention on donations including time, blood, and money from the American communities to support its lifesaving services and programs.
