In the world today, need never sleeps. Every minute of every day you could be helping people in crisis.
The people Red Cross help come from all walks of life; whether it's an Aussie kid going to school hungry, families protecting their homes from a bushfire, to isolated elderly Australians living alone. For just $1 a day you can help transform the lives of some of the most vulnerable people every minute of every day.
As soon as a disaster strikes Red Cross is there providing people with support in their journey of recovery.
When ever you see a Red Cross person in action you will know that your contribution has played an important role in activating a Red Cross emergency response.
Long after the emergency is over, Red Cross continue to help individuals and communities as they rebuild their lives. Last year alone, Red Cross helped over 56,000 people across the region affected by disaster.

Daily phone calls
Betty lives on a remote rural property, but as a widow she relies on the security she gets from her daily phone call from a friendly Red Cross volunteer.
Red Cross provides free daily phone calls to check on the wellbeing of people who are at risk of an accident or illness that may go unnoticed. The calls provide reassurance as well as helping people to maintain their independence. Friendly Red Cross volunteers make calls each morning 365 days a year. If the call is not answered, Red Cross takes action to ensure everything is okay.
