Charity of the Month: Red Cross
Humanity. Impartiality. Neutrality. Independence. Voluntary Service. Unity. Universality. These are the seven fundamental principles that guide the American Red Cross (ARC) and their millions of volunteers, members, and staff. With numbers this great and ambitions this bold, the ARC is one of the most universally recognizable humanitarian organizations on the planet. And along with that, one of the most impactful.
So this month, Wind River is proudly supporting their efforts by donating 20% of all online sales to their life-changing mission.
Established nearly 140 years ago in response to the era’s lack of emergency medical care, founder Clara Barton saw the ARC as an institution uniquely capable of responding to crisis situations brought about by natural disaster and war. In its early years, the American Red Cross set the stage for what it would become, providing aid to refugees and prisoners during the Spanish-American War, sending unprecedented medical assistance to Pennsylvania regions decimated by catastrophic flooding, and even offering its services abroad in war-torn regions.
Today, not unlike the ARC of the late 1890s, Red Cross volunteers and staff put their courage to work where and when it’s needed most. And Wind River is proud to continue our long-time support of this powerful organization by donating 20% of all online sales during the month of March. You can rest assured that this donation will go directly to helping others, because the Red Cross uses 90% of every single dollar donated to fund their care-giving.
It’s never been easier to give a little back to those who give so much. Just find a chime, place your order, and join Wind River in celebrating the American Red Cross as this March’s Charity of the Month.
