time and their resources to support RED CROSS activities.
WITNESS WHEREOF, I have herewith set my hand and caused the GREAT SEAL of

is the proclamation by President Clinton concerning March as Red Cross
of the Press Secretary
RED CROSS MONTH, 2000
THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
the great San Francisco earthquake of 1906, President Theodore Roosevelt
asked his fellow Americans to respond by contributing to the American Red
Cross, "the only organization chartered and authorized by Congress to
act at times of great national calamity." Almost a century later, the
American Red Cross continues to serve our Nation and the world, providing
compassionate assistance to people suffering in the aftermath of personal,
local, national, or international disasters.
one of our country’s premier humanitarian organizations, the Red Cross
provides disaster relief to millions of people both at home and abroad. In
the past year alone, the American Red Cross rose to meet many challenges
– from Hurricane Floyd on the eastern seaboard to the Kosovo relief
effort to the terrible earthquakes and floods that struck countries around
the globe. Following the tragic shootings at Columbine High School and in
other schools and places of work and worship, the American Red Cross sent
in crisis counselors to support grieving families and friends of the
victims. In Taiwan and in Turkey, the American Red Cross worked with other
Red Cross affiliates to provide solace and support to earthquake
survivors; after the crash of EgyptAir Flight 990, Red Cross grief
counselors brought comfort to victims’ families. In total, the American
Red Cross responded to nearly 64,000 disaster incidents last year alone
and helped provide information to thousands of families separated from
loved ones by war or disaster.
services that the American Red Cross provides go beyond disaster relief.
Its biomedical services program provides patients in more than 3,000
hospitals nationwide with the latest in high-quality, state-of-the-art
blood and tissues services. Last year it provided more than 700,000
emergency and personal services for military personnel and their families,
including relaying messages from their families to the three American
servicemen held captive by Yugoslav forces. And in communities across the
Nation, more than 12 million people received Red Cross instruction in
lifesaving techniques last year, ranging from first aid and CPR to water
safety and boat handling.
the backbone of the American Red Cross is a vast network of nearly 4.5
million blood donors and 1.3 million dedicated volunteers who ensure that
help will be there when and where it is needed. Virtually every community
in the United States is served by an American Red Cross chapter, Blood
Services region, or both; and as we have seen demonstrated so dramatically
over time, no community is immune to the sudden and devastating disasters
that require the services and stewardship of the American Red Cross. Each
of us owes a lasting debt of gratitude to this extraordinary organization
that has given so much to our people, our country, and our world.
THEREFORE, I, WILLIAM J. CLINTON, President of the United States of
America and Honorary Chairman of the American Red Cross, by virtue of the
authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States,
do hereby proclaim March 2000 as American Red Cross Month. I urge all the
people of the United States to demonstrate support for their local Red
Cross chapters and to become actively involved in furthering the
humanitarian mission of the American Red Cross.
WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-ninth day of
February, in the year of our Lord two thousand, and of the Independence of
the United States of America the two hundred and twenty-fourth.
