You are warmly welcome to sign up to be volunteer fundraiser during Sept 14-16 or donate. The Finnish Red Cross collects funds for the Disaster Relief Fund.

Hunger Day is the biggest annual collection arranged by the Finnish Red Cross. During the three-day operation, donations are collected for the Disaster Relief Fund all over Finland. The funds are not pre-allocated for specific purposes. This means that the Red Cross can make swift relief funding decisions as soon as a disaster occurs.
