One in twenty-five people receive help from the global Red Cross network every single year. One in five hundred people in the world is a volunteer for the cause. Today—World Red Cross Red Crescent Day—we’re celebrating all the men, women, and children who have a Red Cross story to tell.

The Red Cross network transcends borders. Guided by its seven
fundamental principles:

  • humanity
  • impartiality
  • neutrality
  • independence
  • voluntary service
  • unity
  • universality

They fly halfway around the world during international disasters, drive to nearby communities when tornadoes strike, and walk right down the street to teach swimming lessons. The network is so abundant, many people are touched by the Red Cross without even realizing it.

Nearly everyone has a Red Cross story. What’s yours? Share your Red Cross story at: http://ifrc.tumblr.com/
