GO WITH YOUR RED CROSS (RADIO)

Summary

This fundraising program on behalf of the American Red Cross features a narration by Orson Welles. Welles begins his patriotic commentary with a statement of values in which Americans may take pride, and then discusses the Red Cross's role in the war effort: responding to the attack on Pearl Harbor; supplying service hospitals with blood and other supplies; helping soldiers with domestic worries; delivering packages and messages to POWs; and running clubs overseas for members of the armed forces. Urging listeners to contribute to the Red Cross, Welles stresses that more money is needed in wartime and that the sacrifices made by the men fighting the war outweigh the financial sacrifice made by the donor.
