Message from our CEO: Gail McGovern

I can’t imagine living in a world where someone reached out for help during a time of need, and no one stepped forward to give it.

Our Red Cross community came together this year to make sure we didn’t live in that world. Every 60 seconds, the mission of the American Red Cross has benefited 250 people.

Together, we saved the day for those people who counted on us–sometimes, only at a moment’s notice.

I hope I can count on you to make a year-end, tax deductible gift today to the Red Cross, and save the day this holiday season and beyond:

Click HERE to donate on-line to the American Red Cross or send a check to your local Red Cross Chapter.

Your gift will save the day when the next disaster strikes, or when a neighbor’s house burns down. It will be there when someone needs lifesaving blood. It will connect military families with their loved one in service and provide training in CPR, aquatics safety and first aid. It will provide the comfort of a helping hand.

We don’t know what 2010 will bring. We don’t know which of our neighbors will need a helping hand, or when they will need it. But there’s one thing we can make sure of, together, today: we’ll be there when victims of disasters and other emergencies rely on us to save the day.

With only hours left in 2009 please make your year-end, tax-deductible gift to the Red Cross now.

Thank you so much for your support. My best wishes to you and your family for a very happy new year!
