The Red Cross is calling on those who made a resolution to help out their communities in 2019 to register for a major door-knocking and tin-shaking fundraiser in March.

Australian Red Cross chief executive Judy Slater said volunteering for Red Cross Calling was an achievable way to make a difference.

“An easy way to give back is by signing up as a volunteer doorknocker or event host for our annual community fundraiser Red Cross Calling,” she said.

“When you collect donations in your neighbourhood, you’ll be helping to fund life-changing services for the community, while strengthening your own personal connections with neighbours.

“In an age where so many of us live online, knowing the people in your street, school and suburb is extremely important.”

Ms Slater said neighbours would be the ones to come to your aid during times of crisis.

Registrations for the Red Cross Calling fundraiser in March need to be made by February 15.
