Our people, our supporters
Australian Red Cross/Dilini Perera.
Michael Lamont initially started donating to Red Cross as he found the Good Start Breakfast Clubs to be a practical way to help children who would otherwise go to school hungry. More recently when his parents were cut off by floods in the Clarence Valley in NSW, he saw how Red Cross volunteers were there to help people in the community. Regular givers like Michael donate monthly to support Red Cross’ everyday work. There are currently more than 107,000 regular givers. Regular givers donated almost $30 million, an increase of over $7 million from last year. Regular givers donate an average of $30 a month and are kept up to date with regular communications from Red Cross that show how their money is helping people in need.
