What day is December 13, 2008?

Have you ever thought about what would happen if the American Red Cross could not respond when disaster strikes?

If a hurricane hit or wildfires raged, and the Red Cross was not there to provide safe shelter, deliver food to affected families and first responders, or help people with their physical and mental health needs, could another organization fill our shoes?

Disasters change lives. You can too by supporting the National Day of Giving for the American Red Cross and helping the Red Cross raise $100 million for the Disaster Relief Fund on Saturday, December 13.

Here are ways you can help!
· Get your holiday shopping done at North River Side Park Mall and visit the Customer Service Gift Wrapping Station (10:00am-4:00pm) where Red Cross youth volunteers will wrap your purchases for a donation. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Disaster Relief Fund.
· On Facebook: Join the National Day of Giving for the American Red Cross Cause or Group. Share the Day of Giving URL you’re your friends.
· Donate to the Red Cross by going to or calling 1-800-REDCROSS (1-800-733-27677). You can also use your cell phone to donate $5 to the Disaster Relief Fund by text messaging the keyword “GIVE” (4483) to “2HELP” (24357).
