During Red Cross Month, Help People In Need By Supporting The American Red Cross [March ], [1], 2012 — During March, the American Red Cross is asking everyone to help people in need by supporting the lifesaving services it provides. “Please  remember  those  who  need  our  help  and  support  the  Red  Cross  by making a donation, becoming a volunteer, taking a class, or  giving  blood,”  said [volunteer]. “We want to thank everyone for their generosity, which has enabled us help people here at home, across the United States, and around the world.” March is Red Cross Month, first proclaimed in 1943 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Since that time, every president, including President Obama, has designated March as Red Cross Month. The American Red Cross is synonymous with helping people, and has been doing so for more than 130 years. The Red Cross responds to nearly 70,000 disasters a year in this country, providing shelter, food, emotional support and other necessities to those affected. It provides 24-hour support to members of the military, veterans and their families – in war zones, military hospitals and on military installations around the  world;;  collects  and  distributes  more  than  40  percent  of  the  nation’s  blood  supply  and  trains  more  than   9 million people in first aid, water safety and other life-saving skills every year. “Red Cross Month is  a  great  time  for  people  to  support  our  mission,”  Sheppard said.  “Their  kindness  will   enable  us  to  continue  our  work,  both  here  at  home  and  across  the  globe.” The Red Cross is not a government agency and relies on donations of time, money and blood to do its work. An average of 91 cents of every dollar given to the Red Cross is invested in helping the people the Red Cross services. ### About the American Red Cross: The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation's blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families.
