Michigan Red Cross In Desperate Need of Blood Donations
The Red Cross is in desperate need of blood donations right now, so they are offering up a little superhero incentive.
The nationwide pandemic has had a huge impact on the blood supply. Add that to the flooding that has devastated mid-Michigan, and the Michigan Red Cross is in tough shape right now. They are trying to encourage everyone to set up an appointment to give blood, platelets, or AB Elite plasma now. They even have a Wonder Woman themed giveaway for those who do donate.
I don't want to sound like the responsible parent here, but you should be giving blood without any sort of chance to win, but the WW84 package is a nice incentive. Donors that schedule an appointment to donate blood, platelets, or AB Elite plasma will automatically be entered to win authentic prizes from the movie 'Wonder Woman 1984.' This authentic movie prop replica prize package includes the Golden Lasso and a pair of gauntlets which are identical to the ones used in the movie. Also, anyone donating between now and July 8th will receive an exclusive 'Wonder Woman 1984' t-shirt, while supplies last.
There are definitely no shortage of blood drives going on in our area, for example, here are a few in the coming week.
- Wednesday, July 8th at the Flint Blood Donation Center on S. Grand Traverse in Flint
- Thursday, July 9th at Trinity Lutheran Church on W. Flint Street in Davison
- Friday, July 10th at the American Red Cross of Genesee County on S. Grand Traverse in Flint.
You can always schedule a blood donation appointment with the Red Cross here.
The appointment making may seem like an extra hoop to jump through, but with the pandemic still here, and Coronavirus cases popping up everywhere, safety if the first concern.
Please consider taking some time to help save lives by donating blood today.
