American Red Cross?
A specialist in dealing with events beyond its control, The American National Red Cross offers disaster relief, shelter, and other humanitarian services through more than 700 chapters nationwide. Although it was chartered by Congress in 1905, the American Red Cross isn't a government agency. The not-for-profit organization relies on the efforts of nearly a million volunteers. Aside from helping victims of about 70,000 US and foreign disasters each year, the American Red Cross teaches CPR, safety, and first aid courses; provides support for US military personnel; and maintains the largest blood and plasma banks nationwide. The group is a member of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.

Accepting donations in order to help people in need but to be honest, it is hard to know where all the money goes. For example, if you donate $100, perhaps $10-$25 would direc…tly apply to a person in need.
Clara Barton didn't create the Red Cross. She had America join the Red Cross. A man named Jean Henri Dunant created the Red Cross. He created because he saw all of the soldier…s that had been hurt in wars, but there wasn't enough medical supplies or doctors to help all of the soldiers.
