American Red Cross Giving Incentives To Donate Blood

The American Red Cross has stated that blood donations have been low and the Memorial Day holiday will only add to the lack of people donating as people get ready for their busy holiday weekend plans and the start of a hectic summer schedule.

So as an incentive to donate, anyone donating in May will receive a free Red Cross beach towel while supplies last, and be entered for a drawing of 2 tickets for the Major League Baseball All Star Game in Seattle on July 11th.

Also included for the winner will be round trip air fare, 4 nights hotel stay and a $750 gift card.

Those who donate in June will receive a $10 gift card by email to a merchant of their choice. Plus, they’ll also be automatically entered for a chance to win a backyard theater package including a projector and screen, projector tripod, smokeless firepit, Adirondack chair set and a movie night snack package.
