The success compelled the Red Cross to repeat the March drive during the remaining years of the war and to make it the occasion of its annual membership and fund raising efforts ever since. As part of the tradition, the President customarily issues a proclamation each year declaring March as Red Cross Month.
And the rest is history...
This is a great time to get involved, if you haven't already. The American Red Cross needs your help and survives on the kind-heartedness of others. You can get involved by:
- Donating blood
- Signing up for CPR, first aid or another Red Cross course
- Giving a financial gift that can really save the day when the next disaster strikes
- Getting involved as a volunteer
See, it isn't that hard to give back. We are proud of our history and appreciative of the volunteers, employees and supporters who have given time, blood or contributions to enable the Red Cross to perform its life-saving mission.
