Giving the gift of life

Grateful to give
0 /25

They say it’s better to give than receive, and I couldn’t agree more. Which is why I’m donating my birthday to the American Red Cross!

In lieu of gifts this year, I’m hosting a SleevesUp virtual blood drive and asking friends and family to pledge to give blood in the next 30 days. Together, we’ll track our pledges, cheer each other on, and, most importantly, provide a lifesaving gift for patients in need.

To get started, make your pledge by clicking the red button above, and then visit redcrossblood.org to schedule your donation appointment. You can give at a locally hosted blood drive or at a permanent Red Cross blood donation center.

The impact we can make together is the best gift I can imagine! Thanks for helping celebrate my birthday and for helping save patient lives with your generous gift. Please pledge to give blood today!

Something always interfered with my ability to donate the one thing that helps so many. Now, that I’m able to donate every 56 days I take advantage of the opportunity. I love that I receive updates of those lives saved after only 15 minutes of my time is given to save about 3 lives from one pint of blood. Please help me by helping others for the next 30 days. This would be a wonderful gift to give as I want to celebrate those trying to thrive on my birthday!
