How do I get the Red Cross to stop calling me? Also: I am not actually a dick, really!

For years now, the Red Cross has been sending their telemarketers to me. The calls have been steadily gaining in frequency, until this past month when it's grown intolerable. I get multiple calls every day, to the point where I have pretty much stopped picking up when the call says "Unavailable."
I've asked the telemarketers to take me off the list. They don't. I read online that the Red Cross is exempt from the Do Not Call list, so I am screwed there. Do I have any recourse? I'm not going to have to change my phone number, right?
I support what the Red Cross does. I support giving blood. I feel like an asshole for posting this question. But man, I'm gonna give it on my own time, and when they're calling, and calling, and calling, and calling, well, being put in the position where I either donate or get a deluge of telemarketers on my ass does not exactly put me in a charitable mood. How can I make it stop?
