Today is World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day recognizing the efforts of National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies around the world. It’s their continuing mission to end human suffering, whether from disease, famine, disaster or war. According to the American Red Cross, today and every May 8th they put special focus on programs that keep children healthy and safe around the globe.

The Red Cross provides humanitarian efforts and disaster relief wherever it’s needed. There are over a million Red Cross volunteers and they always have room for more. And there are so many ways you can help – by making cash donations, donating blood, you can take classes in CPR, first aid, lifeguarding, caregiving, even babysitting. Or you can volunteer to do whatever needs to be done in the community. You’re never too old or too young to join. They’ll find something for you to do.

Contact the American Red Cross Buffalo Chapter at www.buffaloredcross.org or call 1-800-Red-Cross.

World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day is celebrated on May 8th each year because it’s the birthday of Henry Dunant, the founder of the Red Cross.
