You probably already knew that the Red Cross has done some great humanitarian work in the 149 years they've existed, but did you know they're also responsible for some seriously great artwork? These recruitment and fundraising posters from WWI show an amazing variety of artwork over only a five-year time span.


All images are in the public domain and can be found in the U.S. Library of Congress Photo Catalog.

Of course, while these posters are almost 100 years old, the Red Cross is still out there helping victims of natural disasters and war. Even though the World War is long over, it never hurts to donate to the Red Cross where you know your money will be used for a good cause.
