American Red Cross & the Globetrotters

For over 90 years, the Harlem Globetrotters have worked in communities worldwide to promote sportsmanship and service, with a goal of spreading 100 million smiles over the next 10 years. To help us reach our goal, we’ve teamed up with the American Red Cross as our official charity partner.

Every eight minutes, the American Red Cross responds to a disaster, most of which are home fires.  Home fires claim more lives annually than all major disasters combined. The Red Cross and the Harlem Globetrotters are teaming up for The Great Assist to support communities across the country to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters big and small.

Join with us as we raise urgently needed funds to support families during times of crisis throughout the year.
