The American Red Cross has been around since its foundation by Clara Barton in 1881. This month, celebrate this historical institution and all that it stands for with promotional products from ePromos!
Every year since its original declaration in 1943, the President of the United States proclaims March to be Red Cross Month. This special month gives the Red Cross an opportunity to promote its services and celebrate its successes in serving communities throughout the U.S. It also acts as a way for the public to learn more about the organization and support it through donations and volunteerism.
In 1942, rather than conducting its regular fundraiser, the Red Cross decided to appeal to President Roosevelt (its honorary chairman) for a special month dedicated to the organization. Roosevelt agreed and thus Red Cross Month was born. By June 1943, donations to the organization totaled nearly $146 million, prompting President Roosevelt to call the campaign, “the greatest single crusade of mercy in all of history.”
