The American Red Cross organizations main focus is recruiting blood donors and volunteers; this is very clear from the first click on their website-a pop up window asking for the reader’s zip code in order to find a donation site near them. The tabs up at the top labeled with large print are inferred to be their most valued ideas. Below each of those tabs is a list of resources related to those individual tabs that help better define their purpose. The American Red Cross website uses the all three of the main types of rhetoric-pathos, ethos, and logos-in a way that benefits their organization and successfully grasps their audience.
Humanitarian action is what the world turns to in case there is a crisis in any part of the world. But as David Rieff suggests in his book, “A Bed for the Night: Humanitarianism in Crisis,” there is a crisis in the humanitarian world and space. He draws from first
Neo-Colonialism Disguised as Humanitarian Intervention Humanitarian intervention is argued to be a necessary means as to prevent foreign states abusing the human rights of its citizens; this position is essentially held by the powers which have the capacity to undertake (but also to undermine) these international interventions. This argument that if taken at face value could be seen by the majority as a respectable position to support as it is popularised by the altruistic feelings garnered from the vocal support, or silent nonchalance towards the enacting powerful groups of humanitarian intervention agencies such as the United Nations (UN) and the United States of America (USA/US). This essay will expand upon the moral codes of which humanitarian interventions are based upon; I do however counter these idyllic foundations with the outcomes from two specific case studies being the US’s Iraq “humanitarian intervention” and the UN’s Libyan humanitarian intervention. These two case studies showcase the alternative neo-colonialist motives behind organizations’ altruistic façade which frames the lives of people as sufferers in conflicts, which is done to support their interventions.
For decades, America has fought in many different wars with the need of health assistance for their soldiers. The American Red Cross is a worldwide organization that helped during the times of war but also provided a path for scientific advancements. Through the American Red Cross and other organizations of this time, they opened up the doors for women to take the chance to advance in the medical field by participating in scientific experiments and being at the aide of wounded soldiers. During this time of scrutiny, the Great War was a hidden opportunity for the encroachment of medical research with the contribution to the expansion of nursing.
TYPE A PROJECT--MSF is a neutral and impartial humanitarian organization that aims first and foremost to provide high-quality medical care to the people who need it the most.

The American Red Cross is a program that helps people worldwide. The American Red Cross has helped people from all over the country. The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. The American Red Cross was founded by Henry Dunant, who was a Swiss Business man who helped soldiers on both sides of a battlefield after the Battle of Solfino. The American Red Cross was founded by Clara Barton in the aftermath of the American Civil War. Both Founders didn’t know that the founding of the American Red Cross would become big as it is today.
When trying to make an argument or persuade someone, images can be powerful tools. They can convey complex ideas that text alone cannot. Images also possess the ability to be simultaneously simple and natural while playing with the wits of the viewer. The Australian Red Cross Blood Service (ARCBS) is a part of the International Red Cross that seeks donations of two varieties for assistance in medical treatments namely cash and blood. The image that I have chosen is an ad print published by the ARCBS with assistance from a reputed ad agency M&C Saatchi. The advertisement proposes that though one of the two means of the donations is not familiar among the crowd, it is equally important as the other and tries to attract the readers towards
What is the American Red Cross? "The American Red Cross exists to provide compassionate care to those in need," states their website. They perform this undertaking through five chief service areas: disaster relief, support of America 's military families, plasma donation, health and safety services, and international services. Through disaster relief, the Red Cross responds to disasters between home fires to hurricanes. They provide food, shelter, health and mental health services to those afflicted. The Red Cross assists “military members, veterans, and their families prepare for, cope with, and respond to the challenges of military service,” helping an average of 150,000 per year. The Red Cross is the largest supplier of blood,
The Red Cross was found guilty by a federal judge of several unfair labor practice charges in 2011 in Michigan. It is said that the company has paid out more than $35 million in fines to the FDA and has refused to bargain on a national level for a new contract since 2009. Based on my interpretation of the article, it appears that the leadership within areas of the Red Cross is trying to guilt the leadership
American Red Cross Organization One agency that has trouble had an impact on me and the people around me is the American Red Cross Organization. While I was in the military I received news that my grandmother was terribly ill and that I needed to go home as soon as possible. I was stationed in Germany at the time so it was not as easy as just jumping into my car and driving back to Florida. My mother called the American Red Cross gave them my social and my unit. In less than 12 hours the American Red Cross Organization had informed me of the news processed my leave forms through my unit and paid for my plane ticket and they even found dog sitters for me. In less than 12 hours, I was at the airport awaiting my flight. They took care of everything that I needed in order to make it home without a single bit of chaos.
Since the turn of the century, the world has experienced various events that have rendered millions homeless, starving or even without a country. Such events may range from merciless persecution by a ruthless dictator to a furious tsunami that leaves destruction in its wake. In such incidents, it is human nature to help those affected rebuild their lives and find comfort again. As a result, governments spend billions on foreign aid projects aimed at helping populations rebuild themselves after a tragic event. Despite the funding and resources spent on these projects, their success rate is dismal. Coyne’s book explains the flaws of state-led humanitarianism. Using case studies that range from Afghanistan to Haiti, Coyne successfully argues against state aid proving that continuing with that approach is likely to remain unsuccessful. He further demonstrates that state aid fails to fulfill its mandate because the parties involved are either too arrogant or ignorant to acknowledge fundamental flaws of state-led aid. He says that the influence of agenda driven opinions of blurs the objectives of financial assistance from the beginning. Since governments focus on what they should, rather than what they can do, the goals of the most aid-funded projects in affected nations remain unrealized.

In the post-Cold War era, the nature of conflicts and events that give rise to the need for humanitarian assistance have significantly evolved. For those caught in the middle of the “war on terror” in the Middle East, or unprecedented violence in Africa, the need to build relationships with the spectator in order to motivate donations is ever present. The relationship between the spectator and the suffering has significantly changed in the past few decades and NGOs and individuals seeking to motivate people to donate must find new ways to motivate this charitable action. In the post-humanitarian era, relationship between the individual donating and the cause has into one that is decoupled from grand emotions and based on moral agency.
