This Red Cross Month Give Shelter and Give Hope

Goal: 30,000 Supporters


James, in just minutes, a disaster like a hurricane or home fire can decimate a family’s home. In the dark moments and days that follow, the task of reassembling their lives can seem insurmountable.

That’s when an American Red Cross shelter - stocked with nutritious meals, warm blankets and the gift of hope thanks to supporters like you - is open to help families navigate their recovery.

In support of Red Cross Giving Day, we’re looking for 30,000 members of this generous community to power our disaster relief efforts in the months ahead. Please, will you give now to help ensure the Red Cross can open shelters for those who’ve lost everything after a disaster and need a place to call home until they can return to their own?

“[The Red Cross shelter has been providing] everything that you can really ask for in a time like this.”

 -- Chris Phillips, affected by Hawaii Wildfires.


With a donation of $125 or more this Red Cross Month, you’ll receive an Indoor Weather Station* as a small token of our gratitude.

James, by helping to reach our goal of 30,000 supporters for Giving Day, you’re not just helping to provide a place to sleep, meals and hygiene supplies — you’re delivering kindness and compassion at a moment when all seems lost.

Your gift today could mean everything to someone struggling in the uncertain time after a disaster. In honor of Red Cross Month and our 10th Annual Giving Day, please give now to help deliver lifesaving disaster relief to those facing their darkest moments.


Thank you for helping families to find hope when they need it most.
