Charity of the Month: Red Cross and the Need for Blood Donations

 

The American Red Cross is such a critical organization that we devote two months each year to donating 20% of all online sales to their cause.

 

This month, we’re asking you to consider helping, not only with your purchase of windchimes, but also with a blood donation. As COVID-19 continues to affect our communities, the Red Cross is seeing an unprecedented number of blood drive cancellations, which is leading to a severe shortage in lifesaving blood.

 

The Red Cross has taken careful measures to ensure that donating blood during this time is safe. While private citizens come together to fight this disease at a distance, the Red Cross and other members of the medical community (along with delivery drivers, civic personnel, grocers, and so many more) fight it at the frontline.

 

While we continue our usual donations from your online purchases, we ask you to also consider donating in another way as well – giving a part of yourself to help your neighbors. You can find a list of donation locations here.

 

Wind River salutes all of those who are sacrificing to help deal with the effects of COVID-19. We’re grateful to be in it with you.
