American Red Cross of Rhode Island THE HUMANITARIAN

The Humanitarian is the national magazine of the American Red Cross. A four-color quarterly, this exciting publication appeals to both experienced Red Crossers and people who are less familiar with the scope of our services and programs. The Humanitarian provides readers with information they can use to improve their own lives and inspires them to get involved in helping the Red Cross enhance and save the lives of others.

Each issue of The Humanitarian contains a compelling photo essay detailing recent newsworthy activities of the Red Cross at home and abroad. Short profiles illustrate the many faces of the organization on a personal, emotionally appealing level, from its individual donors and volunteers to the many people the Red Cross has helped. Feature articles describe how the Red Cross works nationally to combat problems like homelessness and school violence. Other articles showcase innovative Red Cross programs, taking a closer look at practical issues like helping parents find good child care, giving the caretakers of elderly relatives a break and providing summer jobs for youth. Rounding out each issue is "Then and Now," which takes a piece of Red Cross history and contrasts it with our current activities, thus showcasing the ways in which the organization continues to build on its proud tradition.
