The American Red Cross is an organization that provides support for people who are in need of assistance. Many of these people have gone through a tragedy such as home fires, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, and more. Volunteers help to save lives by teaching communities how to be prepared and safe during an emergency. These people show compassion and care for those in need of help during tough times. This organization symbolises comfort and hope.
The American Red Cross is important to me as well as many other people because hearing people's stories and seeing how the American Red Cross helps them can help you connect to the feelings of the victims and also to the people who are helping. This is what has inspired me to organize this fundraiser for my MYP Community Project. A donation towards American Red Cross can make you a life saver too and humanitarian acts will serve as a great fulfillment and accomplishment for yourself as well.
