Only 3 out of 100 Americans donate blood, yet every two seconds someone needs it. Fewer people are donating blood to help patients. You can change that by joining the international Missing Types movement and fill in the missing blood types.
Here at Redeye we understand how real that need is and how it can mean the literal difference between life or death to many patients. Vessel Fest on 8/29 is our way of giving back directly in our local area of Hillsborough, NC with a blood drive on site at HQ. We encourage all of our partner organizations to show support nationwide between 6/17 and 9/13 to help us reach, and hopefully exceed, our national campaign goal of 25 pints of blood.
All donors who do give blood via appointments here or for our local drive at HQ will receive a $5 gift card to Amazon! Please visit www.RedCrossBlood.org/Together for more information.
