Red Cross Calling this March

Every March for 70 years, thousands of volunteers have made a wonderful contribution to our community during Red Cross Calling.

They’ve knocked on their neighbour’s doors, said hello and their combined efforts have raised millions.

I’d like to send a massive thanks to the thousands of schools, businesses, community organisations and our dedicated Red Cross members who’ve answered the call over the years. 

All of that effort has gone a long way, allowing Red Cross to help where we’re needed most; from providing support during and after disasters, to making phone calls to check on the isolated and elderly to helping communities make a better future for themselves. 

So many extraordinary volunteers here in NSW have also gone the extra mile – not just raising money but also reaching out to their neighbours, asking how they’re going and checking on their wellbeing.

Red Cross Calling is more than a fundraiser – it gives us a reason to connect and volunteer for the sake of our community.

Research shows that volunteering and helping in our neighbourhoods helps us live happier, longer lives.

These volunteers make Australia a special place to live.

This year we aim to double the number of volunteers in NSW. Will you be one of them? Join the fun today: redcrosscalling.org.au or call 1800 RED CROSS (733 276).  You can also contact your local Red Cross Branch so you can join their efforts.
