Meet our ambassadors


Australian Red Cross is lucky to have the support of a wonderful team of Ambassadors who give their time and talent to help build our supporter base and raise awareness about our vital everyday work.

Whether they're reaching out to their networks, engaging with our supporters, or appearing in the media, they make a valuable contribution to the vital mission of Red Cross to improve the lives of those most in need, whoever and wherever they are, without discrimination.

Our Ambassadors focus on the growing need for Red Cross to attract regular monthly donors, who we increasingly rely on to deliver our diverse range of programs and plan for the years ahead. They also promote Red Cross during disaster appeals, encourage people to donate clothing to our expanding network of Red Cross Shops and get behind our supporter events and community fundraising campaigns. We're proud to introduce them to you!
