Marlton, NJ (PRWEB) March 15, 2013
March has been celebrated as American Red Cross month annually since 1943, according to the humanitarian organization. Though the charity has become synonymous with blood donation since it first launched its World War II blood donation campaign in 1940, its efforts go far beyond this single lifesaving gift. In military conflicts and natural disasters both at home and across the world, the American Red Cross saves lives and eases the suffering of victims – and that’s just the start. In celebration of the organization during American Red Cross Month, attorney and managing partner Richard P. Console of Console & Hollawell applauds the valiant efforts of the charity and shares little-known information about the organization’s founding and current programs and services available.
“The Red Cross is both a humanitarian organization with a history that we as Americans can feel proud and honored to be a part of and an enduring symbol of hope in the face of disasters,” Console said. “Yet, despite nationwide familiarity with the name, few people know just how much the American Red Cross has to offer families affected by disasters, accidents, and wars.”
Having practiced personal injury law for nearly 20 years, Console has personally seen how significant an impact American Red Cross efforts can have on accident victims. In his latest article, “Five Things You Didn’t Know About the Red Cross,” Console delves into the organization’s rich history and the extensive and varied services that the charity offers. He urges every reader to become an everyday hero in his or her community by joining in the noble aspirations of the American Red Cross.
