In honor of March is Red Cross Month, we decided to show our founder, Clara Barton, how to tweet and celebrate with us. Like most who first start out on Twitter, it took a bit of time to acclimate! Limiting thoughts to 140 characters, what to talk about and, of course, how to properly use a #hashtag were all a fun challenge.
We’re thrilled to see Clara has been hard at work getting the word out about the Red Cross and our amazing everyday heroes.
Don’t know about Henry Dunant? The story of how the American Red Cross started is pretty cool.
Clara was very excited to hear that we have over 2 MILLION Twitter followers!
Check out Clara Barton’s work searching for missing men before the American Red Cross was even founded, and what we’re still doing today to reconnect families separated by crisis, conflict or migration.
