Did you know you could dig a well using only your finger?

Monday March 1, 2010

With the simple click of a button or a single phone call, or by getting involved within your local community, you can become part of the Red Cross Power of Humanity fundraising campaign.

One donation may not go far, but together with thousands of others, you can provide clean drinking water for thousands of people in East Timor, Indonesia, Laos and Cambodia, improving their health and quality of life.

Or you could provide a healthy nutritious breakfast to kids who would otherwise go to school without a proper start to the day.

From March, Red Cross members, supporters, community groups, schools and anyone who wants to make a difference will be out there raising funds for the Power of Humanity.

Get involved with the Power of Humanity anyway you can - donate to Red Cross Calling members in your local area, support online fundraising and fundraising events, sign up as a regular giver for as little as a dollar a day or give a one-off donation through the website

In April, Red Cross will launch For the Love of Humanity, an interactive Facebook application encouraging supporters to raise money through the popular website.

The funds raised will support our every day work with vulnerable people in Australia and Asia Pacific.

The Power of Humanity is a powerful, world-changing sentiment and it starts with one person who wants to make a difference.
