Give blood or platelets with Red Cross ahead of busy holiday weeks

Dec. 6, 2023 — As people make travel plans to celebrate with family and friends this year, the American
Red Cross asks donors to set aside time to give blood or platelets for patients waiting for care over the
holidays.


From a record number of people expected to travel to seasonal illnesses and the potential for hazardous
winter weather, it can be difficult for the Red Cross to collect enough blood for patients during the winter
months. When donors come to give the gift of a blood or platelet donation in December, the Red Cross
will say thank you with several exciting opportunities:


 Thanks to Prime Video and their new film Candy Cane Lane, featuring an all-star cast, including
Eddie Murphy and Tracee Ellis Ross, and directed by Reginald Hudlin, those who come to give
blood, platelets or AB Elite plasma Dec. 1-31, 2023, will automatically be entered for a chance to
win a $1,000 Amazon.com Gift Card and a 65-inch Omni QLED Series Amazon Fire TV. Details
available at RedCrossBlood.org/Amazon.


 Those who come to give blood, platelets or AB Elite plasma Dec. 1-17, 2023, will receive a $10
Amazon.com Gift Card by email. Details available at RedCrossBlood.org/Amazon.
 Those who come to give blood, platelets or AB Elite plasma Dec. 18, 2023-Jan. 5, 2024, will
receive an exclusive Red Cross long-sleeved T-shirt, while supplies last.


Making and keeping appointments throughout the month can help safeguard the national blood
supply into the new year. Schedule an appointment by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App,
visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
