Someone Thinks You’re A Hero –
And We Think So Too!
And since we can’t hug you or fist bump, this will have to do:
- The American Red Cross is giving qualified donors in the referral program ages 16 to 24 who’ve either never donated with the Red Cross or haven’t come to donate in one year or longer* a $5 e-gift card to a merchant of your choice.^
- Plus, your friend who referred you will get a $5 e-gift card* for each qualified donor as a thank you for the introduction.
You’re almost there. You just need to complete the form on this page to sign up to join the program and then schedule your appointment online. We know you’ve got it in you.
How It Works
Fill out the form above to join the American Red Cross referral program. By doing this, you’re raising your hand to say you want to help patients in need – and that’s awesome.
After submitting the form we’ll redirect you to create or log in to your Red Cross account to book your blood donation appointment. Remember, use the same email address that you used to join the program so we can send your reward!
Come give blood and receive your $5 gift card* via email, which can be used at places like Chipotle, Panera, American Eagle, Dunkin’, Sephora and many other options ^. Plus, your friend will also receive a $5 gift card*, our way of saying thanks for the introduction.
