Your car can’t run on empty. Neither can hospital blood banks.
This April, the American Red Cross is teaming up with INDYCAR® to help refuel the blood supply and is offering a chance to win a VIP trip for four to the 2022 Indianapolis 500® to those who come to donate. And there’s more! Presenting donors will also automatically be entered for a chance to win one of five $1,000 e-gift cards to a merchant of choice when they come to give in April.
About blood donation: Simply download the American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit RedCrossBlood.org, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or enable the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age in most states (16 with parental consent where allowed by state law), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
Blood and platelet donors can save time at their next donation by using RapidPass® to complete their pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire online, on the day of their donation, before arriving at the blood drive. To get started, follow the instructions at RedCrossBlood.org/RapidPass or use the Blood Donor App.
