Calling all volunteers and partners

 

Individuals, associations, and companies: join us!

The Donation Month is approaching (1st – 30th April) and the Luxemburg Red Cross is calling on volunteers and corporate partners. We are hoping that together, as in previous years, we can make this important donation period a great success.  

Door to door donations

Over these 4 weeks, over 2,000 volunteers visit households, businesses, and organisations across the country to solicit donations. During these visits, our volunteers create a vital human connection, helping make the Red Cross more approachable and accessible. These volunteers, an embodiment of Red Cross values and principles, give the Red Cross a face. Such informal interaction allows the public to interact directly with an individual, to ask questions, to pass along messages, and to obtain information about Luxemburg Red Cross activities. 

Events to build awareness and momentum

As in previous years, the Donation Month will be punctuated by numerous events and projects organised by volunteers and corporate partners. These actions will increase public awareness of the Donation Month, highlighting Red Cross activities as well as raising money.  

 

Individuals

  • When you become a volunteer you are committing yourself to visiting households in your area. You can work when you are available and according to your means. All of your efforts and the money you raise enable the Red Cross to maintain its crucial activities.
  • As you go from door to door, you are not only collecting vital donations and helping sustain the role of the Red Cross, but you are also raising awareness for the Red Cross and the work it does.

Become a volunteer collector or get involved in supporting the Red Cross in another way!
