Large costly disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes make the news—but most emergencies don't. A house fire or a loved one needing CPR may not be newsworthy, but they're a tragedy for those involved. In every single case, it is the mission of the American Red Cross to be there and help those in need—whether disaster strikes thousands of people at once... or one family in the middle of the night.
The American Red Cross helps prepare communities for emergencies and keep people safe every day thanks to caring people who support our work. Please support your local Red Cross.
