Every day the Red Cross and Red Crescent brings health care, clean water and other vital help to people affected by the crisis in Gaza and Israel. To fund this work, our supporters are digging deep and making donations large and small to the British Red Cross Gaza and Israel Appeal.
People have been making payments online, over the phone, by post and in plenty of other ways too. But how else have they supported the appeal?
As well as opening their wallets, they’ve been asking friends and family to give too – bringing in even more donations. Our appeal launched on July 24, and within hours people were spreading the word on Twitter.
