What it is Giving Day is a 24-hour fundraising event on April 21st, 2016 that builds awareness for our critical mission and raises funds to support the lifesaving work of the American Red Cross.


To build awareness about Giving Day and enhance your social media activities, follow the three steps below:


  1. Sign up to be a Social Ambassador! As a Social Ambassador, you’ll join a special group of our most dedicated supporters in helping spread the word about Giving Day. When you sign up to be an ambassador, you’ll receive weekly content and videos you can share on social media. You will be a part of a nationwide team raising awareness for lifesaving mission and helping more families in need.  It’s fast and easy to sign up – just go to givingday.redcross.org/ambassadors/


  1. Leading up to Giving Day, you can keep the momentum going by posting to your own social media accounts. Use the hashtag #help1family on your social media accounts to encourage your friends and family to get involved and donate on Giving Day. See examples below.
