American Red Cross
Reprinted in part from Wikipedia
The international fraternity is widely involved in charity and community service activities. Money is collected only from the membership, and is to be devoted to charitable purposes. Freemasonry worldwide disburses substantial charitable amounts to non-Masonic charities, locally, nationally and internationally.
Some examples of Masonic charities include:
Homes that provide sheltered housing or nursing care.
Education with both educational grants or schools such as the Royal Masonic School which are open to all and not limited to the families of Freemasons.
Masonic Child Identification Programs
In addition to these, there are thousands of philanthropic organisations around the world created by Freemasons. The Masonic Service Association, the Masonic Medical Research Laboratory, and the Shriners Hospitals for Children are especially notable charitable endeavors that Masons have founded and continue to support both intellectually and monetarily.
Interested in being a candidate for Freemasonry? Men can petition a lodge in his community, obtaining an introduction by asking an existing member, who then becomes the candidate's proposer.
The American Red Cross
In addition to domestic disaster relief, the American Red Cross offers services in five other areas: community services that help the needy; communications services and comfort for military members and their family members; the collection, processing and distribution of blood and blood products; educational programs on health and safety; and international relief and development programs.
Issued a corporate charter by the United States Congress under Title 36 of the United States Code, Section 3001, the American National Red Cross is governed by volunteers and supported by community donations and income from blood products.
