Did you know that here in Northeast Indiana

· The American Red Cross of Northeast Indiana chapter assisted 230 families affected by house fires last year
· Our chapter¹s Health and Safety instructors taught 14,466 people vital lifesaving skills making our neighborhoods safer places to live · As part of the Red Cross Home Fire Campaign, our chapter has reached more than 115 homes and installed 62 smoke detectors
· More than 80,000 donors have given nearly 150,000 units of lifesaving blood through the Indiana-Ohio Blood Services Region

We couldn¹t be there to help without the generous support of the community. That¹s why the American Red Cross is kicking off its first ³All in One Day² fundraising campaign on June 2, 2015. Red Cross Giving Day is a 24-hour national fundraising campaign supporting the work of the Red Cross in Northeast Indiana and in communities across the country each and every day.

The theme of Giving Day is ³All In One Day² because the Red Cross is ³all in² every day to help people get back on their feet. The Red Cross is asking everyone to make a donation online on Tuesday, June 2 to help ensure that help is available wherever and whenever people need it.

³We¹re also recruiting volunteer social ambassadors to build the social media movement through actively sharing Giving Day information using the allin1day hashtag,² said Katherine Mac Aulay, Executive Director, American Red Cross of Northeast Indiana. ³For this campaign to be effective, we really need the public¹s support.²

To take part in Giving Day and support the work of the American Red Cross, please visit All in one day, working together, we can bring help and hope to people when they need it most.

³On June 2nd, we have 24 hours to turn compassion into action,² said Mac Aulay. ³On this one day, please donate to the Red Cross so we can be there to help people in need.
