How You Can Help:

All American Red Cross disaster assistance is free, made possible by voluntary donations of time and money from the American people. You can help the victims of thousands of disasters across the country each year, disasters like the Hurricanes of 2008, by making a financial gift to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, which enables the Red Cross to provide shelter, food, counseling and other assistance to victims of disaster. The American Red Cross honors donor intent. If you wish to designate your donation to a specific disaster please do so at the time of your donation. Call 1-800-REDCROSS or 1-800-257-7575 (Spanish). Contributions to the Disaster Relief Fund may be sent to your local American Red Cross chapter or to the American Red Cross, P. O. Box 37243, Washington, DC20013. Internet users can make a secure online contribution by visiting

For volunteer opportunities, contact your local chapter.


One Response to Help Now

  1. I am posting links on my flickr stream to your newsroom and to the donate online. I cannot officially “solicit” online but I can ask people to consider making a donation as I did. And I can tell them that you are staged for relief operations in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. And I thank you also.
