Help the Red Cross beat the Iron Cross
Don't say you have done your bit,, and shake your head,
when the Red Cross solicitor touches you on the arm.
You may have bought bonds, you may be buying
Thrift Stamps, you may have given to the Red Cross
YOU HAVE NOT GIVEN ENOUGH
Your sacrifice, no matter how great in money and comforts, cannot equal
theirs who have gone to the bloody trenches to fight, that you may stay at -home
This is no time for self-satisfied near-patriots.
The man who backs but and says "no'-' to the Red Cross is a slacker.
He knows it and the community knows it."
Brand yourself with a RED
BUTTON, 2nd. War Fund,
Show it with pride to the world. Urge others to do the same.
Hawaiian Chapter, American Red Cross
