I love the Red Cross and all the work they do, and I think it’s important to support them all year long. Let’s not forget to add the Red Cross onto the Christmas shopping list planner as a person to buy for!
Their site gives you the opportunity to buy things for people in real need, like those who have lost their homes to fires or natural disasters.
In the past, I’ve had my kids sit at the computer and help me pick out which presents we buy for the Red Cross families (you can see them all here).
The other good news is that they have this easy way to give all year long. My favorites are the gifts like diaper and formula packs for mothers with babies, cooking packs with pots and pans and stirring utensils for people who have recently lost their homes, etc.
Editor’s Note: The Red Cross did not ask me to post this – it’s completely a public service. I’m just a huge fan and supporter of the work they do, and I donate to the Red Cross because I think it’s important to remember that Jesus told us to love one another. We can do that every day by taking care of each other, even those in need that we don’t know personally!
