AMARANTH13, I live near Houston, and we have been hit by some terrible storms and hurricanes. The Red Cross is the first on the scene after the disaster. Love those people and how they take care of my students and neighbors. Hurricane Ike was particularly bad for my hometown. Thank goodness for the Red Cross.

Hi, I thought i'd join this team when I read you could choose a #1 charity you admired. For me that is the Red Cross. I used to donate blood all the time in the Netherlands but here in the US they don't want my blood because I was in Europe over half of my life. Which is a pity but I also understand we don't want to make people ill.

I admire that the Red Cross gives help to anyone needing it, not depending on partner choice, religion, or anything else. That is what a charity should do, pushing a religious or discriminatory agenda to me makes that not a charity anymore. Since I realized how the Salvation Army discriminates I stopped giving to them and instead go to the place where I know they have a donation jar for the Red Cross to offer my quarters and dollars.

I have a lot of work to do, and if everyone on here is as charitable as the Red Cross I'm sure it will be a great group to find and to offer support!
