Red Cross Offers Prizes In Attempt To Spark Blood Donations

Want to donate some blood to the Red Cross to help sick, possibly dying, patients? No? How about for the chance to win a trip to Disney World? Facing the lowest donor levels in more than a decade, the Red Cross is hoping drawings get people into more of a blood-giving mood.

The News-Herald (Ohio) reports that in previous years, the Red Cross offered a car and a year’s supply of gas as prizes. For more information about donating blood, visit the Red Cross site.
