BENEFITING: American Red Cross
The fundraiser Raising the Red Cross was created to help donate money to one of the hardest working non profit associations in the U.S. The American Red cross works internationally to help relieve people you have just been through a natural disaster or devastating event. They specialize in disaster relief, blood drives, health and safety training and education, and supports America's military and veterans. The whole group is based off of a mission statement, "The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors."(http://www.redcross.org/about-us/who-we-are/mission-and-values)
People can help today by simply making a small donation of the amount they have chosen. Make a donation and help people in distress around the world. The idea of this fundraiser website for the American Red Cross started by G.B.D and its assignment. G.B.D stands for graduation by demonstration. This year the assignment was community service which is about helping out in the community whether it would make a huge or small impact. I have been learing about the Red Cross for almost 2 years now since it has always been my go to association for school projects. Instead of analyzig more of what they do I would like to participate in helping them do what they do best, helping others. My goal for the amount of money raised is $500.
