American National Red Cross
December 11, 2010
Tens of thousands of trained Red Cross volunteers in the USA help those affected by flood, fires (including house fires), earthquakes and other disasters. You can donate to the national organization, or to your local Red Cross Chapter if you want the money to support the local disaster relief fund. Only Red Cross is at the scene when needed to help victims of house fires. Only Red Cross is there without pushing a religion or soliciting donations from the victims.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Helping those most in need in a timely manner. They verify both need and ability to use funds properly before distributing direct financial aid.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Urge the national organization to financially support the local chapters on a regular basis, rather than the other way around.
Volunteer & I responded to local and national disasters as a Red Cross volunteer for more than 10 years.
