State Topic - I'm going to inform the class more about the American Red Cross on how they are helping people.
Founded in 1984, the Ark Aid Street Mission is an organization who serves individuals who live on the margins of society. Known as a popular charity, The Ark is registered with the Canada Revenue Agency which is supported by a variety of people and associations such as churches and businesses. Staff, volunteers, and donors are all motivated by Christian faith, and express kindness, and love to individuals who need it most. The work and ministry of the Ark is dedicated to helping anyone who is need, regardless of colour, race, and ethnicity. The organization provides holistic services for the whole person, encouraging and helping individuals to discover or rediscover individual values. By focusing on holistic services including
The Salvation Army had its first meeting in Atlanta on the corner of Marietta and Spring Street in 1890. Later in 1893 it established its District Headquarters in Georgia. Today, the Salvation Army is embarking on 125 years of “Doing The Most Good” in Atlanta, Georgia. Since that time the Salvation Army has expanded its services by helping the communities by providing temporary housing and shelter to families, single men and women, partnering with Ft. McPherson and the Veterans Medical Center providing housing for Military Veterans. Many of our military men and women return to face a variety of hardships, including homelessness, substance abuse, poverty, disabilities and mental illness. Veterans make up 13
Service learning is key to understanding a multitude of people and personalities. The American Red Cross is the wonderful organization where I get to serve my community and gain experience applicable to my future career. I will assist in blood drives, spread community preparedness, and educate others.
The Salvation Army also sends out pamphlets that if you "make a gift” to their organization you will get tax savings, for example, it says that, “if you give a gift of $5,000, you will get an income tax reduction of $2,309 plus a North Dakota (if you live in North Dakota, its different in other places) tax credit of $924. Then, at 6%, the payment you receive are $300 with a tax-free amount of $236. After receiving your income for life, your remaining gift of the $5000 goes to help those in need. It just sounds strange to me, to give a donation and then get money back, because to me, giving a donation means you don’t expect to get anything back, you do it because it’s the kind thing to do, not to get benefits.
I chose to do a case analysis on the nonprofit organization, Wounded Warrior Project. My wife and I once were big donation supporters of the Wounded Warrior Project since I am a combat veteran and many of my peers who were severally injured rely on nonprofit organizations like Wounded Warriors. Unfortunately, in March of 2016 reports came out that the Wounded Warrior Project had been misrepresenting how the nonprofit’s funds and the donations were being spent. Even though the Wounded Warrior Project has made bold adjustments to the nonprofit organization, many supporters felt heartbroken from the deception and misuse of our donations. In light of the internal issues of the nonprofit, the Wounded Warrior Project as a whole still
The healthcare industry is one of the sectors that are of great value to the society and the goal to improve healthcare has not only been in terms of facilities but also the manner of treatment that surrounds ethics. Woodville Healthcare Centre has resorted to strive in doing right by their patients in every means possible. Part of their mission involves doing everything right as far as healthcare ethics is concerned. Woodville faces scenarios involving various principles of ethics that are based upon diverse ethical theories. In many cases elements of all major ethical theories are usually looked at by Woodville’s operational staff, executive staff and the governing board as a whole in dealing with various ethical scenarios.
The nonprofit agency that I have chosen is the Red Cross. The Red Cross is considered humanitarian resources. The Red Cross was founded by Clara Barton in 1881. The Red Cross is an organization that helps those who are in need by providing them with emergency assistance. The Red Cross mostly get fund by donations. Most of their service consists of volunteers who help conduct service to the public. The Red Cross offers five key services. Which consist of disaster relief, supporting military family, life saving blood, health and safety services and international services. The Red Cross responds to over 70,000 natural disasters in the United States. The disaster range from fires, hurricane, earthquakes and floods. The Red Cross even helps
The Red Cross is an International support system that teaches, doctors, and helps with natural disasters and people. Clara Barton heard of the Red Cross located in Germany, Europe, and went to Europe to bring the organization to America. She became the head of the American branch and immediately began helping the 5,000 people who were left homeless from the “Thumb Fire” in Michigan. Clara Barton successfully lead the Red Cross of America for 30 years. The Red Cross is the single largest supplier of blood in the US, and was the first to develop treatment for hepatitis B & C, as well as HIV, West Nile Virus, and Chagas Disease.
"Be the change you want to see in the world"...and, if you can't be that change, then either get out of the way of the person who wants to be that change or support the individual with your financial resources.(Gandhi). Do you know someone who is trying to decide which organization to donate his/her time or money? Volunteering is an awesome way of giving back to your community and also while developing important social skills for example (affection, leadership, good communications skills, the ability to listen). There are many different types of volunteer opportunities available. Two wonderful opportunities that exist at the American red cross and my sister’s house. These two establishments are very different, but that is the beauty of the vast amount of volunteer opportunities that exist. There is an opportunity that will meet the needs and interests of everyone; therefore there are not any
I believe that those who have served our country in the past deserve to be treated with the utmost respect and appreciation. It outrages me when people talk badly about our veterans and attempt to take from them. I have challenged these people by donating to organizations like the Wounded Warrior project and by showing those around me that they can help those who have fought for our freedom. By doing so, I hope to get more people to spread the word on the poor treatment of the most important people in this nation and hopefully, the way they are treated will change for the better in the near future.
I 'm writing this essay because i am interested in becoming a red cross volunteer and would love the opportunity to experience volunteering at Walter Reed Hospital. I was in this program last year and i was put in the Radiology department and it was really great experience i was exposed to so much and i learned so much last year. I want to be in this program again because when i get older i want to work in a hospital and although i learned so much last summer there is still a lot i can learn, see and experience. I got the chance to work in breast imaging where I improved my communication and computer skills thats where i mostly spent my time at. i also worked the front desk where i checked in and out patients i learned the process they take
The ethical issues in the culture of the American Red Cross which created the issues in the case were the slow response to the terrorist attacks on September 11th of the New York world Trade Center. It was said that the pentagon called the Red Cross President which was Bernadine Healy at that time, to ask where was the Red Cross? This call came days after the disaster happened. It was further stated that that the president of ARC failed to activate the specialized help that was normally sent. To add to the issues during this time the ARC was blamed for the mismanagement of financial donations.
The American Red Cross is “a humanitarian organization that provides emergency assistance, disaster relief and education inside the United States”. They provide disaster relief, support for America’s military families, the collection, processing and distribution of blood, health and safety services, and international relief and development programs. Chobani believes that everyone deserves to equal and have the same opportunities. In accordance with these beliefs, Chobani will use the 30,000 USD to help the disaster relief portion of the American Red Cross. The money will be used for anything from helping the American Red Cross with transportation, to the equipment used to help rescue and save people, or even building houses/shelters for people
The American Red Cross is a humanitarian cause that I care about. The American Red Cross was founded in 1881 by Clara Barton. The reason she founded it was because when she visited Europe she heard about the international Red Cross and realized just how United States needed it. Red Cross’s mission is to give aid in national disasters and other serious disasters. It also gives education to needy children and emergency assistance throughout United States. (Our History / American Red Cross History. (n.d.)) The four steps to my marketing strategy is make commercials, get businesses, churches and schools to find volunteers and get funds.
