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.
Support military service members and their families when you shop on eBay this week. From July 7, 2014 through July 14, 2014, eBay customers are invited to give a small amount, as little as $1, but that $1 dollar can really add up to help! Donate at checkout to benefit American Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces. Shoppers should also save the Red Cross as their favorite cause, so they can consider a donation to the Red Cross at checkout at any time of year. Here’s the short link to go directly there:http://www.ebay.com/redcross
For more than 130 years, the American Red Cross has provided comfort and support to members of the United States military. In the past year, the Red Cross has briefed more than 1.1 million people through the Get to Know Us Before You Need Us program, delivered 344,000 emergency communications services and distributed 140,000 comfort, care and therapy items in military hospitals and other facilities. Locally, the Tennessee Volunteer Region has provided 4,970 services to military families, services members and veterans over the past year AND as of 5/31, the Mid-South Chapter had provided 2,368 of them! We have fantastic volunteers who ensure these services are available to all military families; we could not provide these services without the dedication of our volunteers and the generosity of donors.
The Red Cross Services to the Armed Forces programs are a cornerstone of who we are and what we do at the Red Cross. We have supported the military and their families for more than a century, from the Civil War in the 1860s to today’s deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Every donation counts to make sure we are able to provide this support each year. Thank you eBay for your generous support.
