Fun morning with @wfaa and @ntxgivingday celebrating #ntxgivingday’s 10th birthday. Giving Day is 2 months from today! #redcross #iamup #bloodemergency
Early this morning, the loud beeping of 4 smoke alarms woke this family of three, enabling them the time to safely leave their home. First-responders arrived on scene to contain the flames as the #RedCross tended to the family's personal needs. 
While heartbroken by the devastation caused by the unexpected fire, the family is grateful their smoke alarms helped save their lives! Learn more about fire safety: redcross.org/firesafety #EndHomeFires

Wrapping up another successful North Texas Guard Games competition here in #Plano. For the past 2 days, lifeguards from across #NTX have been competing the largest lifeguard competition in the state, testing skills from rescues & CPR to scenario situations and more. Red Cross aquatics teams helped judge the events as several #RedCross trained lifeguards competed. Winner of games will advance to the state competition. Great job to everyone!
Thank you Texas Capital Bank for generously donating a fleet vehicle to assist with transporting blood to hospitals for patients in need! You are literally helping move the Red Cross mission forward.
Pool time? Even when it's cloudy, make sure to grab the sunscreen and stay hydrated. Designate a water Watcher to make sure everyone stays safe.

Dallas Delegates from the #RedCross Tiffany Circle joined members from across the globe at the Tiffany Circle International Summit in #Geneva, #Switzerland. 
Held in the Red Cross historic headquarters, the summit provided an inspiring & informative session about the humanitarian work of the International Red Cross Movement. 
This educational forum highlighted the incredible work of the @icrc & @international_federation and helped demonstrate the significant role of the Tiffany Circle in helping move the Red Cross mission forward.
Every 2 seconds, someone is the U.S. needs blood. While some may not realize how important blood donations are, for others like Michael Leirer, blood donations provide life & hope. Read Michael's full story on #RedAlert (link in bio).
