THE STORY:

You don’t need a cape or super powers to be a Hero! Online Heroes for the American Red Cross is a grassroots fundraising and awareness campaign that gives you the chance to make a big, lasting difference — and to be recognized for it, too! If you choose to become a Hero, you pledge to raise $1,000 for the American Red Cross.

The American Red Cross 2013 Heroes Campaign will run from November 1st through December 31st. 

$1,000 can cover the cost of . . .

  • 200 blankets for people affected by a disaster.
  • 400 comfort kits containing hygiene items for a disaster client.
  • Clothing for nine children who lost their clothes in a house fire.
  • Meals and lodging for five days for a family of three displaced from their     home.
  • A babysitting skills class for 14 youth.
  • Training 11 individuals to learn how to help someone in a cardiac or breathing emergency.

Ideas of how to raise money

Examples of how to fundraise include: individuals collecting pledges from friends and family through online social networking, clubs holding car washes, a business holding a dress down day, or you asking your friends, neighbors, relatives or colleagues to make you a Hero. Everyone can be part of this grassroots campaign by donating a dollar for a Red Cross Square.
