Goal: 500 pints in 500 hours!
USA 500 Clubs is proud to support the American Red Cross’ mission of providing lifesaving care by donating blood. Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood, which means more than 38,000 blood donations are needed per day. Unfortunately, the pandemic led to a decline in blood donations as blood drives were canceled – and now, people around the country are feeling the impact of the dwindling supply. With over 800 club members around the country, as well as thousands of partners, associates, family members and friends, USA 500 Clubs felt that it was our duty to help the blood crisis in whatever way we can.
It only takes one pint of blood to save three people, and our goal is to save 1,500 people with 500 pints.
This campaign will run from May 2nd-21st. We hope to recruit as many people as possible to “Share a Pint” and pledge to donate! You can also share this campaign with your friends and family by using the hashtag #ShareAPint.
