Presenting blood donors receive lift tickets this month

This holiday season, the American Red Cross asks you to give something that means something.  Give a gift that can help save a life. Give a blood or platelet donation.

Each of us can help spread hope this holiday season by giving something that doesn’t cost a thing  but can offer so much more. And, to show their appreciation, during the month of November, all presenting donors at the Burlington Blood Donor Center will receive a Buy One, Get One Free adult lift ticket for use at one of Vermont’s awesome ski resorts. Donors will have a choice to redeem their ticket at Jay Peak, Mad River Glen, or Smugglers’ Notch.

Holiday activities often conflict with donation appointments for many regular donors. If just a few more people than expected would roll up a sleeve at each blood drive scheduled during the holidays, there would be enough blood to meet patient needs.

For more information about donating blood, or to make an appointment to donate blood please visit www.redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS. Individuals who are at least 17 years of age, weigh at least 110 pounds, and in good health may be eligible to donate blood. Walk-ins welcome!
