The Red Cross is a humanitarian organization that provides emergency assistance, disaster relief and education around the world.
Not one would fail to be impressed!
The more I knew them the more I loved them. Red Cross is good. Paid and volunteer with them in 2 wars and Y2K, in US only, and on call for Saudi at ODS. I offer some of my art for their benefit always, because they are good. I just wish each person could spend 3 days on site with them in a crisis. Not one would fail to be impressed! I never knew anyone on earth could just "give" so much, outright, when needed, and yet keep track of it all, and uphold their solvency, with options for payback and much more. Especially since Katrina! I think we have all learned a lot. A natural disaster "over there" is a lot different from one at home. Please take a great community interest in YOUR local red cross. It is the only way to be sure your preparedness team is getting and giving what they need to be prepared, themselves, for the best response.

Making a Lovemark on the world
For over 125 years the American Red Cross has been out in the field, literally assisting millions of people in desperate times of need for basic human essentials. But the most fascinating aspect of this organization is the fact that it is carried by millions of nameless volunteers who step-up and out at a moments notice to help their fellow humans. This organization and all of the caring volunteers are truly making a Lovemark on the world.

They leave their Lovemark wherever they go
In my search for things that have moved me on the site, I was surpised not to find one that has helped so many people all over the world. The Red Cross is always there in a crisis and we have too many of them these days. I'd like to add such a wonderful organization to this list for they leave their Lovemark wherever they go.

No matter what happens, they're there
The Red Cross is one of those organisations you can't not support. No matter what happens, they're there. World War 2, the Tsunami, anything and everything. The immense strength they signify is astounding, and humbling too.

I'm honored to wear it.
I wore a Red Cross in the Middle East recently. Locals would come up to me, touch the symbol, and trace a Crescent in the air questioningly. The Red Cross and Red Crescent movement is one of the few universally recognized, universally trusted organizations on Earth. Iraqis expressed sympathy to me when the International Red Cross building was leveled in Baghdad. There are no other symbols I can think of that would connect people like this one does. I'm honored to wear it.

My Lovemark is the American Red Cross
My Lovemark is the American Red Cross. For over 120 years this symbol of trust and support in time of disaster has not wavered. To have an organization where 95% of the work accomplished is done through volunteers is amazing. And these volunteers get up and respond to the need at two in the morning just to give a hug to someone they've never met. This committment affected me to the point I left my high paying advertising agency job to work on Red Cross's behalf. When people see this symbol, they know help is available or there in times of disaster and they feel better just in that knowledge.

Love it back
Itīs one of the only 'brands' in the world that loves you back. And I think almost everyone has a personal history with it, everyone that has been in an accident, a family member, a friend, or even an entire country. The Red Cross was there, helping people. So my history regarding this loved brand comes to this: love it back, help the Red Cross in your country by making donations.
