Red Cross Features ‘Glam that Gives Back’ at Campus Fashion Shows


Hip Apparel for Life Clothing Line will be featured at the University of Miami

WASHINGTON, Monday, November 27, 2006 — Calling it “glam that gives back,” the American Red Cross will launch its new line of hip t-shirts during pop-up fashion shows at the University of Miami on November 27.

The Red Cross Apparel for Life line features eight trendy tees drawing on historical elements of the Red Cross that are recast in a funky fashion. All eight tees will be featured in this public, high-energy show that relies on campus talent. Models may be familiar faces as all participants are from the University of Miami.

The Red Cross invites the campus and the surrounding community to stop by its high-energy show at either 12:15 p.m. or 1:15 p.m. Students, staff and community members with tight time schedules can enjoy the 15-minute show, get their picture taken, learn a bit about the Red Cross, and hustle back to class. In 15 minutes, attendees will receive A-list treatment as they sit in the traditional fashion show atmosphere of a white chair-lined, 36-foot runway.

The American Red Cross helps people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies. Last year, almost a million volunteers and 35,000 employees helped victims of almost 75,000 disasters; taught lifesaving skills to millions; and helped U.S. service members separated from their families stay connected. Almost 4 million people gave blood through the Red Cross, the largest supplier of blood and blood products in the United States. The American Red Cross is part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. An average of 91 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in humanitarian services and programs. The Red Cross is not a government agency; it relies on donations of time, money, and blood to do its work.
