What Has Your Red Cross Money Done?
IN ITHE FIRST PLACE, it has enabled the American people,
through the Red Cross, to help care for its Army and Navy.
SECONDLY, It has enabled America to hearten her Allies'
fighting forces and to keep up, among the civilian populations,
the spirit to win the war. That, alone, has made the American
Red Cross one of the largest factors since our entry into the war.
Canteens which provided food and hot drinks--more than a million meals
to Soldiers in December; warehouses crammed with materials, situated all along the
French line, all along the Italian lines, at seaports and at places where our soldiers are
going to fight; institutions, for the care of consumptives, institutions for the re-education.
of maimed men--these are a few of the concrete accomplishments abroad.
At Home--the millions of woolen sweaters, mufflers, socks and other comforts
for the men in camps; the work of sanitation around cantonments and the help and
advice given dependents of Soldiers and Sailors--these are things which will "make you,
your children and your children's children, in whatever part of the world they may be,
proud of being Americans."
