Bre Dumke tumbled 70 feet down the side of a mountain while hiking in Denver. She survived her injuries thanks to skills her friend Julie learned from a Red Cross first-aid training course
“Without her Red Cross training, I wouldn’t be here.”
Bre was fortunate that Julie was there and trained in first-aid. Health and safety courses are just some of the many ways the Red Cross prepares and helps communities. Will you be there for thousands of people who will be helped by the Red Cross this year? Your generous gift today can help make sure that your neighbors, your family and your community is ready for whatever comes their way.
Whether it’s training people like Julie to be prepared for emergencies, providing life-saving blood to hospitals or sheltering families during times of crisis – the Red Cross can be there because of committed supporters like you.
In addition to providing life-saving courses for more than 6.5 million people, in just one year here are some of the ways donors like you have helped make a difference:
Nearly 30,000 overnight shelter stays for people facing emergencies
Provide some 400,000 services to military members, veterans and civilians
1.8 Million meals and snacks to people affected by disaster
The generosity of people like you is what powers the Red Cross response every day. We couldn’t do it without you. When you make a tax-deductible donation to the Red Cross, you can feel good knowing that 91 cents of every dollar the Red Cross raises goes directly to our services and programs.
We’re so grateful for your support which has allowed us to fulfill our great humanitarian mission for more than a century. Without everyday heroes like you and Bre’s friend Julie, there would be no Red Cross. Thank you.
President and CEO, American Red Cross
