World Red Cross Day is an annual celebration of the principles of the Red Cross organization. May 8th is the anniversary of the birth of Henry Dunant, who founded the Red Cross almost 150 years ago (and was the recipient of the first Nobel Peace Prize!). It’s a great day to give blood! If you’d like to do even more (or, if you can’t give blood for whatever reason), then you can support the Red Cross through a fashionable purchase or just by wearing the iconic cross to show support and raise awareness.
Click through to find some great fashions that will not only look great, but also support a great cause! And don’t forget to give blood on May 8th!
