Join Team Red Cross

One of the things I love about my job is getting to see the best side of people. When there’s a disaster, there is always an outpouring of support, both financially and personally. The American Red Cross has sometimes had trouble figuring out the best way to use all of the people who come forward to volunteer in times of crisis.

As they say, though, “There’s an app for that.” Today we have launched the “Team Red Cross” app. It’s a free download designed for both Apple and Android, that can recruit and orient volunteers whenever they’re needed. There are videos and information about the different tasks that may be needed, with quizzes and even the opportunity to earn virtual badges.

We’re encouraging everyone who might want to volunteer to download the app today, before disaster hits. You can find out more information about this great new app here:

    Curious about whether you can get it to accept the correct answer in the Feeding quiz for how long food can be kept between 40 and 140. The answer is “4 hours” but I cannot get it to accept any of the possible answers (1 to 9 hours). If it’s something I am doing wrong, I’d like to know what it is.

    • Hi, Steve–I had that problem, too. There’s a box that says “Next” in the upper right corner. That will submit your answer and move you to the next question. Thanks for asking!
