The month of March is dedicated to supporting and celebrating the American Red Cross. American Red Cross Month raises awareness to the duties of Red Cross workers, raises funding, volunteer support for projects and relief efforts, as well as instilling the goodwill of the people.
People who want to support the American Red Cross during the month of March can contribute in many ways including, but not limited to: donating blood, donating money, learning life saving skills through their programs to help those in need, and doing volunteer work. You may also help indirectly through general acts of goodwill as the founding principle of the American Red Cross is, “ the duty of care we owe to one another when times get tough.”
Throughout the month of March, the people of the nation should try and contribute to both the Red Cross and their local communities in honor of its vision.
