Don’t let this day pass by without thanking humanitarians Clara Barton and Adolphus Solomons, who founded the American Red Cross.


Like Clara and Adolphus, there are so many amazing people in history to thank for their inspiration and dedication. It is from their unique insight and selfless work that we have benefited in the midst of such things as wars, natural disasters, medical break-throughs and social suffering.
