On April 26th the American Red Cross will hold our third annual Giving Day, a 24-hour event that helps raise awareness, recruit volunteers, support blood collection and fundraising goals.
It’s also a day to honor our volunteers and donors. Without their support and tireless efforts, it would be impossible for the American Red Cross to fulfill its humanitarian mission.
On Giving Day we ask local communities and families to come together and help people affected by disasters and emergencies, people who need Red Cross to get back on their feet.
Join thousands of people like you and support families in three simple ways: donate money, donate blood or donate your time by becoming a Red Cross volunteer.
Make an appointment to donate blood or platelets and help ensure lifesaving blood products are available for patients in need. Donate blood with the Home Team at Home Plate Center.
KING 5 is hosting its first annual Blood Donation Drive at its SODO studios. (1501 1st Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98134)
Make a financial donation to help families get the services they need to start their recovery. Nearly every eight minutes, the American Red Cross meets a family that has lost everything to a home fire or other disaster.
Your time and talent can make a real difference in the lives of others. Volunteers carry out 90% of the humanitarian work of the Red Cross.
Register today to become one of our mission fulfilling volunteers.
History of Red Cross Giving Day
Red Cross Giving Day was first established in 2015 and continues as a 24-hour rally to raise public support. The Red Cross responds to human need following small and large scale disasters every day. We work tirelessly to prepare individuals and communities for the day that storms arrive, fires hit, or other disasters leave families disenfranchised. The Red Cross responds to support its countrymen, help them find their feet and restore as much of their lives as they’re able.
