Below are examples of how FedEx and Soap.com have worked with American Red Cross to make local communities a little safer:
Moms and their families across the US are quickly helping the Red Cross prevent, prepare and respond to emergencies by recommending friends purchase their health, beauty and household essentials on Soap.com. In less than three months, Soap.com has already donated over $125,000 to the Red Cross through Share the Savings.
Sharing the Savings works like this: Every time a customer of Soap.com recommends Soap.com – or one of its sister sites site, such as Diapers.com (for all your baby needs), Beautybar.com (prestige beauty brands), or Wag.com (everything for the other little one in your family - your pet) - to a friend, the site will donate $10 to the American Red Cross when their friend completes their first purchase. The friend will also get 20% off their first Soap.com order.
The program began April 29, 2011 and is there is no limit to the number of friends you can Share the Savings with or the amount of donations Soap.com will give the Red Cross. Share your Savings today!

FedEx, Red Cross and NASCAR: Racing to Prepare
Children across the U.S. are benefiting from a unique disaster preparedness training program called Race to Prepare. Now in its third year, the program is sponsored by FedEx.
Racing from one “pit stop” to the next, 250 San Francisco Bay Area school children came out in June for the first Race to Prepare event of the year.
With the help of a small army of volunteers from the Bay Area Red Cross, a local Boys and Girls Club and FedEx, and with Denny Hamlin, driver of the #11 FedEx race car, the children learned about the importance of disaster preparedness. They also participated in a fun and engaging preparedness event racing from one “pit stop” to the next, picking up important preparedness kit items (batteries, water bottles, etc.). Volunteers cheered them on at each stop. Items were dropped into a Red Cross bag and after making the rounds each child had his or her own preparedness “starter kit” to take home and share with their families.
Having waved the checkered flag in the Bay Area, we’re now looking forward to our next Race to Prepare event. On your mark, get set, go!
