American Red Cross  Join us as a Red Cross Giving Day Social Ambassador:

3 days until Giving Day! Today you'll meet Roberto. Originally from Nicaragua, Roberto's dedication and love of the #RedCross mission started when he was on the receiving end of help. His work as a volunteer began in 1992, when he and many other South Floridians sought help and food from the Red Cross after Hurricane Andrew. Eventually he'd become a course instructor, local disaster responder and mobile-feeding vehicle driver. Today he's a communicator for the South Florida region. #help1family

4 days to Giving Day. From local Red Crosser, to being on the scene of countless disaster relief efforts, to deploying overseas to work with Service to the Armed Forces, Tammie (center) has played a pivotal role in the mission. She loves working for the Red Cross because of her passion for helping others. Share your #RedCross story and favorite photo with the hashtag #help1family.

5 days until Giving Day! Thank you @minjulian5 for sharing your family photo. #help1family

The #RedCross offices in Washington, D.C. had a visit from the Red Cross pet therapy pack at @redcrosswalterreed today. Here are a few snapshots of our furry volunteers and their human partners.

On April 18, 1906, at 5:12 a.m., the city of #SanFrancisco was shocked when a severe #earthquake shook the city. The earthquake and the fires that followed killed an estimated 3,000 people and left half the city's residents homeless. Although the #RedCross was only one of the relief organizations that played a role in restoring San Francisco, it met the challenge of successfully restoring an area after a large scale catastrophe. Here you'll see one of the Red Cross feeding operations in Union Square, San Francisco, following the earthquake. #sanfranciscoearthquake

Thank you to the Abington, MA Fire Dept. Captain Jack Glynn and the many others who donated at the Boston Strong #RedCross Blood Drive in remembrance of the 2013 Boston Marathon attacks.

Nearly every eight minutes, we meet a family that has lost everything to a home fire or other disaster. Thanks to @craignewmark, we have an easy way for you to make an impact for families in need. Every time you use hashtag #help1family, you'll earn $1 for #RedCross (up to $25K) leading up to Giving Day, April 26! #ChallengeAccepted

An unidentified group of #RedCross workers inspect boxes destined for #Christmas overseas shipment for troops during the First World War. At that time, uniforms consisted of a white coverall apron, peaked coif worn low on forehead.

We've teamed up with museums in the Washington, D.C. area to highlight how our organizations were involved during World War I. Check back throughout the day for more photos featuring our Production Corps! For example, this photo taken in #Paris, #France, in January 1919. This American Red Cross reconditioning department had been in operation for some time at Rue St. Didier. A great number of women were employed there, going over and renovating articles that had been damaged in transit. Examples include cases of supplies from America that had become waterlogged and unfit for use. It is here that such items were cleaned and re-sewn, such as the mattress covers seen on the left side of photo.
