March is Red Cross Month and we will celebrate how lives are changed through the Red Cross. On March 2, we launched the first national Change a Life contest. The contest will run from March 2-16. Red Cross employees and their immediate family members are not eligible, but all of our volunteers, supporters and community members who are 18 years and older are encouraged to enter. For official rules contact any of the local efficacies of the Southern Maryland Chapter. 

To enter, we will ask people to “Tell us how a Red Cross experience changed your life or someone else’s life” in 75 words or less. All entrants will have a chance to win a two-night trip for two to Washington D.C. to join country music artist Keith Urban and his band on Aug. 20 as they play their Escape Together World Tour concert.

The package includes backstage passes and a tour of the Red Cross Disaster Operations center. The second place winner will receive a 52” Philips HD LCD television, DVD player and a library of Red Cross preparedness, health and safety DVDs. 

* The contest officially ends on March 16 at 12:00 AM ET.
