Top Posts for 2009
As we close down the year (and some say the decade) we are eagerly anticipating the future and all the ways technology will enhance our ability to fulfill the mission of the American Red Cross.
But…Tradition tells us we should reflect a bit on our past, so here are the 10 blog posts from this humble site that you all visited the most this year:

- Red Cross Featured in “Lie to Me”: American Red Cross had a cameo on this highly watched TV program on FOX.

We love being able to connect you all together in this way and we’re looking for more ways to do it even better in the future
- Fire Safety During Winter Season: Even though we live in Florida it does get cold! So, before you turn on your heat or light up that fire, please take the necessary precautions to keep your family safe from house fires this winter season.
