As you may know, the American Red Cross provides more than 40% of the blood supply in the United States and the need for blood is constant.
Every 2 seconds, someone in the United States needs a blood transfusion, which means each donation a volunteer makes can save more than one life. To help encourage volunteers to donate, the American Red Cross has started an exciting and new Donor Rewards program.
Donors who give:
- Red Cell (Whole Blood) get 500 points per donation
- Double Red Cell (Red Cell pts x2) get 1,000 points per donation
- Platelets get 250 points per donation
In addition, each new participant will receive 250 registration points after successfully reporting blood donation activity on the Red Cross Racing website, and you get more points by referring friends!
The more points you get, the cooler the rewards! To learn more, visit www.redcrossracing.com.
