THE AMERICAN RED CROSS AND WMIT RADIO

TEAM UP FOR THE “12 DAYS OF GIVING” CAMPAIGN

Holiday Partnership Urges Folks to Give Something that Means Something—Blood Donation

Experience the true meaning of the holidays this season with the hope and inspiration of the “12 Days of Giving.”  WMIT Radio has partnered with the American Red Cross to help boost blood collections during the holiday season, a time which traditionally sees a drop in donations.  WMIT is co-sponsoring several blood drives from December 26, 2013 through January 6, 2014 spanning western North Carolina, the Foothills and the Charlotte area.  All presenting donors will receive a free Red Cross T-shirt.

The Red Cross Carolinas Blood Services Region provides lifesaving blood to 103 hospitals and must have 1,600 people give blood and platelets each weekday to meet hospital demand. Accident victims as well as patients with cancer, sickle cell disease, blood disorders and other illnesses receive lifesaving transfusions every day. There is no substitute for blood and volunteer donors are the only source.

 

Blood can be safely donated every 56 days. Platelets can be safely given every two weeks, up to 24 times a year. Most healthy people age 17 and older, 16 with parental consent, who weigh at least 110 pounds, are eligible to donate blood and platelets. Donors who are 18 and younger must also meet specific height and weight requirements.
