March is Red Cross month! This month the Red Cross honors its volunteer heroes and asks everyone to be a hero for someone in need. There are so many ways to help others with the Red Cross. You can become a volunteer, give blood, learn skills to save lives, or donate on Red Cross Giving Day (March 25th).
For Michigan’s 2021 virtual fundraiser we have decided to combine Red Cross Month with the fun of March Madness Basketball Tournament to create heroes of March! We will be raising funds for the whole month of March. There will be a virtual event held from March 24-27th. This event will have a silent auction, sponsor opportunities, mission moments, and Red Cross’s version of “chalk-talks” and sports broadcasts. Join us as we partner with Fox Sports, John Beilein, and other basketball VIP’s to help us fundraise for the important mission of the Michigan Red Cross. We have a $200,000 goal, and we’ve already reached $65,000, which is only thanks to our amazing donors!
Do you know some heroes in your community? Nominate them to be a Hero of March! There are several categories to be nominated in, so whether your hero donates blood whenever they can, or provided first aid to someone using skills they learned through the Red Cross, there’s a place to recognize them. The winners of this award will be announced at the virtual event on March 24th at 5 pm. Visit the website below and enter your nominee for the award.
