American Red Cross Month, 2015

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                For more than 130 years, the devoted women and men of 
                the American Red Cross have responded to challenges at 
                home and abroad with compassion and generosity. In 
                times of conflict and great tragedy, they deliver 
                humanitarian relief, save lives, and offer hope for a 
                brighter tomorrow. Their service has meant so much to 
                so many, and it reflects a fundamental American truth: 
                we look out for one another and we do not leave anyone 
                behind. This month, we renew our sense of common 
                purpose and honor all those whose sacrifices have made 
                our society more prepared, resilient, and united.

                As a nurse and educator, Clara Barton dedicated her 
                life to caring for others and alleviating suffering. 
                After years of tending to soldiers and families in 
                their hour of need, she established the American Red 
                Cross, creating a force for peace and recovery in the 
                wake of the Civil War and opening paths for millions 
                across our Nation to serve their brothers and sisters. 
                In the generations that followed, the American Red 
                Cross and other service and relief organizations have 
                combated pandemics, supported our Armed Forces, and 
                provided disaster relief and mitigation worldwide.

                In big cities and rural towns, American Red Cross 
                volunteers support their communities, helping people 
                donate blood, teaching first aid, and increasing local 
                preparedness. Last year, our Nation once again bore 
                witness to their grit and resolve as thousands

                donations become hot meals and dry clothes--they carry 
                forward Barton's legacy and safeguard the promise that 
                in moments of darkness, there is hope. They remind us 
                that when we stand together, America emerges stronger.

                Our Nation has always been shaped by ordinary Americans 
                who dedicate their lives to achieving the 
                extraordinary. During American Red Cross Month, let us 
                ask what we can do for those around us and resolve to 
                make service to others a part of our everyday lives.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America and Honorary Chairman of the 
                American Red Cross, by virtue of the authority vested 
                in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim March 2015 as American Red 
                Cross Month. I encourage all Americans to observe this 
                month with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and 
                activities, and by supporting the work of service and 
                relief organizations.
