This simple line challenges us to examine where we stand when it comes to helping others. It asks us translate our compassion into action. That is the goal of the Generous Nation campaign.

American Red Cross
The American Red Cross is the largest humanitarian organization in the Unites States, where people of all faiths, ethnicities, economic and social backgrounds come together and mobilize to help their neighbors—down the street, across the country and around the world—during and after emergencies great and small. Whether its half a million disaster victims or one sick child who needs blood, their vital work is made possible by people like you, volunteers, who learn how good it can feel to lend a helping hand. Volunteers who help them respond to more than 70,000 disasters a year. Teach millions first-aid, CPR, swimming and other skills. And help gather half the nation’s blood supply – six million pints annually. The American Red Cross is an organization of volunteers that help Americans prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies. And they need your help. Visit www.redcross.org today. And don’t almost give. Give. Time. Money. Blood. Whatever you can.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  This is spam, but it may be benevolent spam, (0+ / 0-)

    so I'll let others decide. This is hyping (sideways) the Ad Council's new Don't Almost Give.org site. It's pushing for all kinds of charities, some of which aren't site favorites, like the Salvation Army, and some of which are.

    While I support the general direction of this diary, I'm not sure of its provenance, so someone who has more background might chip in.

    At least half the future I've been expecting hasn't gotten here yet. Sigh.... (Yes, there's gender bias in my name; no, I wasn't thinking about it when I signed up. My apologies.)

    •  If it were for the International Red Cross (0+ / 0-)

      I'd be more inclined to accept the "benevolent" descriptor you use . ..

      •  I said "may". I have no clue, but I kicked it to (0+ / 0-)

        the Help Desk anyway, just in case.
