Red Cross Club

This petition had 160 supporters

Hello, my name is Katerina and I would like to start a Red Cross Club at school. Over the summer I've worked with the organization and have truly fallen in love with all the good they do. What I love about the Red Cross is how versatile it is and how many different ways they help those in need. Over the summer I've not only become CPR/AED certified, but have become trained to teach others how to perform CPR and use an AED machine. I've also been certified in psychological first aid and am a part of the Disaster Mental Health team. What I think is unique about the Red Cross is that there are so many branches in which you can help- whether it be through teaching others CPR, talking on live television as a Red Cross representative, or blogging the experiences of those affected by a disaster, the Red Cross has over 500 ways in which you can help the community by doing something you love, and unlike other clubs, volunteering isn't a means of going to walks and handing out shirts or water bottles, but volunteering has a direct impact on another persons life. Personally, I love medicine so I went the health route but I know of people who become Red Cross lifeguards or who become shelter managers. I feel that if we had a Red Cross club at school, we could not only directly help others, but learn many life saving skills in the process in the fields in which we respectively enjoy.
