Description:
 The American Red Cross has a network of generous donors, volunteers and employees who share a mission of preventing and relieving suffering, here at home and around the world. Each day, thousands of people provide compassionate care to those in need.

Since being founded by Clara Barton in 1881, the American Red Cross has been a consistent lifeline for people when they need them the most. The depth and breadth of their services whenever and wherever they're called for is unmatched by any organization, charity or non-profit in the world.
