Whenever a life is turned upside down by disaster, the American Red Cross is ready. Ready with a safe place to sleep. Ready with a hot meal. Ready to help people get back on their feet.
For 125 years the Red Cross has been responding to disasters across America. In fact, each year in communities large and small, victims of some 70,000 emergencies of every size turn to the Red Cross for help.
The i’m™ Initiative is a new program that enables you to help the Red Cross assist people in need through Windows Live™ Messenger.
Every time you have an instant message conversation using i’m, Microsoft shares a portion of the program’s advertising revenue with the Red Cross. With no set cap on the amount donated, the more i’m conversations you have, the more money goes to help the Red Cross respond to disasters of every size and scope through its Disaster Relief Fund.
There is no fee for joining or using the program; you simply select the Red Cross as your charitable organization when you join. It takes just a few minutes to join, so you’ll start making a difference with your next i’m conversation through Windows Live Messenger, without spending a dime.
The Red Cross is not a government agency—we rely on donations, your donations, to do our work, and an average of 91 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in humanitarian services and programs that make a real difference in the lives of millions of people.
