The Red Cross fundraiser takes place annually on the first Sunday of October, where
collectors from around the country come together to raise funds for people in need,
nationally and globally. We raise funds to provide immediate assistance and to ensure
acute and life-saving support when the next disaster strikes.
In 2023 it takes place on October 1st!
WHAT ARE THE FUNDS USED FOR?
The Red Cross is always there. We are the world’s largest humanitarian organisation, and for more
than 150 years, we have helped people through wars, catastrophes, and vulnerable life situations.
Every year, we provide disaster relief for 85 million people worldwide. We also use a portion of the
funds to support the extensive social work carried out right here at home, including the efforts of
volunteers at Red Cross Copenhagen.
BECOME A VOLUNTEER DISTRIBUTOR
You can also become a volunteer in the week leading up to the national fundraiser, as we need help distributing the collecting boxes to the collectors.

This year, after you’ve completed your route, you can drop off your collection box at any of the meeting points in the Capital Region. You will receive a list of all the meeting points, along with the collecting box, at your home address within the week leading up to the fundraiser.
When you sign up, you can choose the district in which you wish to collect donations. If you have already signed up and wish to collect in a different district, for instance because the meeting point is closer to your home, you can contact us on tel. 38 33 64 00 or email@example.com.
If you send us an email, please remember to state your full name, phone number, and which district you wish to collect in. However, please be aware that other districts may already have many collectors, making it potentially more challenging to be assigned a route in a different district than the one you were originally assigned to.
The fundraiser takes place from 9 AM to 3 PM on the first Sunday of October. The collection box drop-off times at all meeting points are from 10 AM to 3 PM.
If you can’t participate, you can return your personal collecting box to Red Cross Copenhagen, Nordre Fasanvej 224, 2nd floor, in the reception.
