Give the perfect gift, donate blood
The holidays are about memories, reliving old ones and making new. Exchanging gifts often is an important role in those memories – whether it is the latest gadget or a special treasure hunted down for a loved one.
But ask cancer survivors or trauma victims to describe their favorite gift, and many would say the perfect gift doesn’t come in a box. It’s a lifesaving blood donation.
Donating blood is giving the perfect gift – another hug, another laugh, another chance – to someone in need of blood.
The Red Cross encourages people to contact their nearest Red Cross blood drive or blood donation center. This gift will cost nothing but an hour of their time
