WATERLOO (KWWL) -

In an effort to help more people, the Red Cross is launching a first of its kind fundraiser.

On June 2, the American Red Cross is launching Giving Day. It's a 24-hour national fundraising campaign. The Red Cross is asking everyone in Iowa to make a donation.

Here in Iowa, the Red Cross responded to 547 disasters last year. Instructors taught more than 50,000 people CPR. The Red Cross also helped install 1,115 smoke alarms. All this is made possible through donations.

To help with Giving Day, visit redcross.org/givingday.
