American Red Cross Giving Day is celebrated on April 21 of every year. American Red Cross has been working for many years to help and support people in need around the world. American red cross provides hope and urgent help like shelter, food, and other requirements to families who need it. It will not be possible without the significant efforts of volunteers. American Red Cross Giving Day honors all of these super-heroes and the tireless work they do to support people and families who have had their lives ravaged by emergencies, disasters, and war.
“I’m happy to volunteer for the American Red Cross Celebrity Cabinet. The Red Cross is an organization that responds to those in need and it is an honor to help them with the lifesaving role they play everyday in communities nationwide.”
