Red Cross Week

6-12 May 2018


Fabulous fundraising events. People making donations. Friendly collectors on the street…

Red Cross Week is our favourite time of year.

Red Cross Week ties in with World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day. This is an annual celebration of our Movement’s work across the world. It’s celebrated on 8 May each year.

During Red Cross Week, people across the UK come together to help raise money for people in crisis. 

And you can be a part of it.

Kindness Calendar – one week, one kind act every day

This is a fun way to get involved. Download the calendar and you can choose from a list of kind actions for each day of Red Cross Week (or add your own unique ones!).

It could be sending a card to someone to say thanks for helping you out, letting someone go ahead of you in a queue or signing up to do a collection or holding a cake sale.

You can use this idea as a family, a team, or individually. Why not double your kindness and get sponsored to do this too?

The key aspect of this activity is sharing what you are doing everyday on social media and internally. How about doing a video diary and sharing the impact of yours or other people’s kindness?

Remember to share your daily acts of kindness using #PowerOfKindness and @redcrossweek and/or email
