American Red Cross; blood donation possibilities from Nov. 21 to Dec. 21 15

As many gather for Thanksgiving celebrations with family and friends, the American Red Cross is urging donors to shake up their holiday traditions and plan a time to donate blood or platelets in the weeks ahead.

Blood and platelet donations tend to drop more than 20% during holiday weeks, including the days around Thanksgiving. Seasonal illnesses and the threat of winter weather can add more worry during a time of year that is traditionally difficult for the country’s blood supply.

Give thanks and give back – now is the time to make and keep giving appointments. Reserve a time to donate blood or platelets at RedCrossBlood.org. As a thank you, everyone who comes to donate from November 23-27 will receive an exclusive Red Cross beanie, while supplies last. Thank you to our partners at Amazon, all the donors who come to donate blood from Nov. 28 to Dec. 28. 15 will receive a $10 gift card via email.
