Hurricanes, floods, fires, accidents and other disasters happen every day in the U.S., and the Red Cross is usually one of the first organizations to respond. Through the Red Cross giving site, you can provide three blankets ($18), hot meals for two people ($20), or even sponsor an entire food truck to be rushed to victims of a disaster ($2,000). The organization also offers comfort kits ($50) for wounded members of the military, which include a phone card, robe, shower shoes, toiletries, and an MP3 music gift card. Other options include donations toward blood-collection operations and global public health. You can let your recipient know about your gift with a printed, printable or e-card. The American Red Cross, which spends about 91% of its funds on programs, responds to about 200 disasters in the U.S. every day.
