Why does the Red Cross use Twitter?

We use it nationally to give people real time resource information during disasters. Individual Chapters may use it for any number of purposes, but all of us would love to hear from you.

  3. Please encourage California’s Red Cross chapters to get on Twitter. Great idea.

  4. I would like to see this mandated throughout the disaster structure. Not just for the big disasters, but residential fires etc.

  5. Could you add the Mile High Chapter to this list? “redcrossdenver”

  6. My wife and I are long time donators, however we are about to quit Red Cross and donate to other providers because we have asked the Red Cross telephone solicitation to remove us from the telephone harassment list over 9 times.

    This is out of hand. The last time my wife was sick and I told the operator to remove us. This particular call was for my wife and the operator said only my wife can talk to him. She woke up for the call and told him again, for the 9th time to stop calling and we would donate at work the next time… however, now we are reevaluating our volunteer spirit.

    Red Cross… STOP phone harassment as you will loose more donors than just us.

    -Charles & Susan White

Thanks, Red Cross, for being a great partner and great innovator in social media!

  57. Question, I see people on facebook starting their own “fan” sites or whatever they’re called to collect money. Is it illegal for people to set up stuff like that and asking people to send money to his paypal account? I know its not safe but he said he’s got pictures of himself on there and he’s donating all the money. I know it would be nice to believe people when they say that but sometimes the worse people come out in the worst of times. Is it illegal wether he’s or not?

  58. Follow the Connecticut Chapter of the American Red Cross on Twitter! We are at CTRedCross.

  59. The STUDENTS IN HAITI are ready for the Red Cross to start disbursing some of those funds to help them RECONSTRUCT their lives with respect to EDUCATION.

    Why is it that the RED CROSS is holding on to the money and not releasing it right now? WHY?

    Please support the HAITI STUDENTS SUBSCRIBED AND WAITING FOR HELP at haitiecole.com

The was a nice comprehensive overview of the selected services. Thank you for bringing this to light.
