Join Santa this Holiday Season and Give the Perfect Gift
Imagine a gift that doesn’t cost you a penny. No coupons, special deals, shipping fees or crowded shopping areas are needed for its purchase. What if the gift that costs you nothing is really the “Perfect Gift”…the gift of life!
Forget about the door buster deals and steals. The Red Cross has the best deal yet – 3 for 1! You can help save up to three lives with one blood donation.
The holidays are one of the toughest times to collect blood but YOU can make a difference. If only 10 percent of the U.S. population donated blood this holiday season, up to 34.2 millions lives would be saved.
This season give more time – time with loved ones, time to create memories and time to laugh. Put away your credit card (unless you're making a purchase from the Red Cross Holiday Giving Catalog at www.redcross.org/gifts) and roll up your sleeve to give a gift that truly matters – the gift of life.
No matter if you’ve been naughty or nice, we’ll be sure to have cookies waiting for you when you come to donate.
To schedule an appointment to donate or find a blood drive near you, visit www.redcrossblood.org. When you're done, take a look at this quick video that's sure to have you laughing! From all of us at the American Red Cross, we wish you a safe and happy holiday season!
