Welcome, Red Cross Walmart Ambassadors!

This page contains all the resources and information you need to be an amazing Canadian Red Cross Virtual Ambassador.

Since 2003, Walmart has been an integral part of the Red Cross team. Each year, Walmart stores across Canada dedicate several weeks to fundraise in support of the Red Cross.

This year’s annual in-store campaign takes place July 2-31. Together, our goal is to raise $2.5 million, plus a Walmart match of up to $820,000 to support Red Cross activities across the country.

Thank You! We appreciate you becoming a Red Cross Virtual Walmart Ambassador in this time of physical distancing! The relationship you build remotely between the Red Cross and your local Walmart stores is critical to us achieving the campaign goal and ensuring the Red Cross is always ready to provide food, shelter, clothing, financial support, and essential supplies whenever a family is affected by a fire or emergency.

Thank you once again for your dedication and commitment to the 2020 Walmart Campaign. Your efforts are changing lives!
