I often talk about how important the Red Cross was to me any my mom because of her need for blood. But the American Red Cross is so much more than blood drives. Today they need your kindness.

Today is their first ever 24-hour fundraising. This effort supports the work that the American Red Cross does throughout the year. The Red Cross is encouraging everyone to go to RedCross.Org or to call 1-800-Red-Cross to make a donation.

If you are on Facebook or Twitter you can also help build awareness of Giving Day. Use the "All In One Day" theme - just hashtag #allin1day
