The Canadian Red Cross is a part of the largest humanitarian network in the world. It also happens to be one of the best charities in Canada according to Moneysense Magazine. Over 2,000 000 Canadians use their programs and services every year. Abroad the Canadian Red Cross on average responds to a disaster (big or small) every 4 hours, with a team of more than 6000+ response volunteers. I could go on, but why not head over to their website and learn more for yourself, and if you can, please donate.
