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 2014 Heroes Campaign will run from May 8th through May 29th. $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.

 

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.

 

Sign-up to Be a Hero!  Please join our efforts to help our neighbors by becoming a "Hero for the American Red Cross" today.
