Four Simple Things You Can Do to Support Red Cross Giving Day

Tomorrow, March 28, is our fourth annual American Red Cross Giving Day! We hope you’ll join us and thousands of others across the country to help those who have lost everything in a disaster. There are many ways to participate in Giving Day tomorrow, but here are four simple things you can do to help make an impact.

Follow the hashtag #help1family

Follow the hashtag #help1family to follow Giving Day activities across the country. You can help by  using the hashtag on your own social media channels early and often. Craig Newmark, founder of Craiglist is challenging us to share the hashtag far and wide! Will you help us get to 25,000 uses of the #help1family hashtag?

As a bonus, you can show your support on Facebook with a custom “Giving Day Supporter” profile frame. You’ll find this by going to https://www.facebook.com/profilepicframes and searching for “Red Cross Giving Day 2018.”
