In 2012 alone, nearly 6 million people across America may require a blood transfusion. With no substitute for human blood, those in need rely on the kindness of donors. Today, June 14, 2012 is World Blood Donor Day. To support the Red Cross mission to prevent and alleviate human suffering, we are urging everyone to take action and become a hero by donating blood. To raise awareness about blood shortages in the U.S. the American Red Cross Blood Services is partnering with Nexcare TM Bandages. Beginning today and running through the end of June, Nexcare Brand will be giving away limited edition bandages that say "give" to demonstrate that "Giving Blood is Timeless" at Red Cross blood drives and donation centers.
The American Red Cross Utah Region would like to thank the donors who have helped save lives and encourage those who haven't to do so! Please pledge your support for blood donation, request free "give" bandages and enter for a chance to win a trip for two to New York City, visit Nexcaregive.com or text “give” to 34426.
