American Red Cross

Become a Volunteer!

The National Day of Service might be over, but that doesn’t mean that your commitment to volunteerism has to end there!

Some of you may have seen this PSA campaign for its call for a new “spirit of service” from Americans by our President and as many Presidents before him have urged us. I think that this is a very moving speech…it makes me want to get out and do more for my community. So, I urge you to, at least, watch the PSA and decide for yourself:

Also, visit the website to sign up for service updates. And, if you’re already a volunteer — with the Red Cross or with any organization — send a text message and see your state pop up on the USA Service Mobile Map.

Honestly, you don’t want to miss out on serving your country as a volunteer. And when you get involved with the Red Cross, you have the option to help locally OR nationally.  As a wise person once said, ” A pessimist, they say, sees a glass of water as being half empty; an optimist sees the same glass as half full. But a giving person sees a glass of water and starts looking for someone who might be thirsty.” G. Donald Gale

So, find your moon, your levee, your dream and remember, its not enough to be compassionate, YOU MUST ACTbecome a volunteer today!
