World Red Cross Day is held annually around the world on 8 May, the day that Red Cross Red Crescent founder Henry Dunant was born. Australian Red Cross people around the nation celebrated by wearing red and showing their support for the work of around 17 million volunteers worldwide plus our 40,000 staff, members and volunteers in Australia. It's this incredible movement of people that helps us be everywhere for everyone.
