Get involved


It's our 100th Birthday! We want you to help us celebrate.

The Centenary of Red Cross is a great Australian story about the extraordinary generosity and compassion of millions of everyday people helping people.

It's an honour to reflect on our remarkable history, celebrate our achievements and thank generations of Australians for their support.

Red Cross is part of the fabric of Australian life, touching the lives of most people in some way. From helping someone caught up in an emergency or assisting an elderly person stay in their home, to saving a life with first aid or a blood donation, Red Cross has been there.

More than ever, Red Cross needs your support to continue our vital everyday work. Find out how you can get involved and help Red Cross change lives for the next 100 years.
