The American Red Cross responds to an emergency every eight minutes. No one else does this: not the government, not other charities. From small house fires to multi-state natural disasters, the American Red Cross goes wherever they are needed, so people can have clean water, safe shelter and hot meals when they need them most.




Your donation powers the Red Cross response to nearly 64,000 disasters a year nationwide, providing shelter, food, emotional support and other necessities to those affected.

By making a charitable donation to the Red Cross, you are there for millions of people who face emergencies every year and help as they rebuild their lives.
