WordPress.com is Proud to Help Power Red Cross Relief Efforts
WordPress is way more than just a blogging platform — it’s a full-featured Content Management System that powers over 17% of the web. We love seeing the myriad ways people use it to get their messages across.
Today, we’re proud to highlight the American Red Cross’s Disaster Online Newsroom, a hub for photos, videos, and vital on-the-ground information that’s central to their relief efforts.
The Disaster Online Newsroom is more than just a press center, it’s a way for the Red Cross to share critical information like shelter and emergency response vehicle locations, ways we can all help or offer financial support, and more. Understandably, the Red Cross Newsroom is now focused on Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, but it’s updated in all crises, U.S.-based and international. As websites go, it’s relatively simple but is packed with information, and offers a great example of how easy it is to create an effective web presence for a relief, non-profit, or community organization on WordPress.com.
We’re thrilled to be able to give organizations like the American Red Cross a home here on WordPress.com. We applaud them for the work they do around the globe, and are proud to play even a small role in their heroic efforts.
