Donate blood to support World Blood Donor Day

I'm a big believer in the importance of donating blood. So many lives have been saved by blood donations and it's such a simple thing for the donor to do (and you usually get cookies!). Next Friday, June 14th is World Blood Donor Day.  Read on for details!

Next Friday, June 14th marks the 10th anniversary of World Blood Donor Day. In honor of this heroic day, Nexcare Bandages in partnership with the American Red Cross and America’s Blood Centers is excited to announce the launch of the 5th annual Nexcare give campaign to help spread awareness about the he vital need for blood donation during summer months

To help bring awareness to this need, the Nexcare give is partnering with mother, actress and American Red Cross spokesperson Soleil Moon Frye to conduct an annual nationwide blood donation campaign encouraging Americans to donate blood and bring attention to the 10th Anniversary of World Blood Donor Day – Friday, June 14.

Beginning Monday, June 10 and throughout the week leading up to World Blood Donor Day (Friday, June 14), you can receive free samples of the 2013 Nexcare give Bandage Collection by donating blood at participating local American Red Cross or America’s Blood Center locations. You readers can find these blood centers by visiting the Nexcare give Facebook page, and can also share their personal blood donation stories with their friends and the broader give community and pledge to support blood donation.
Not only can you share your story on the Nexcare Give Facebook page, if you visit the page and pledge your support, you will be entered to win a trip for two to a Four Seasons Resort! So get busy pledging and donating blood!
