Red Cross offering gift card to donors during blood shortage
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The American Red Cross is adding an incentive for donors as a way to encourage people to give blood during a national emergency shortage of all blood types.
The Red Cross says when people donate blood, platelets, or plasma, they make a major difference. Patients who need regular transfusions, and those whose needs are unexpected, count on donors.
As a special thank you for donors generosity during this urgent time, if you donate between July 30 and Aug. 30 the Red Cross will send you a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card* via email.**
