The rewards program is based on attempted platelet and plasma donations from January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022, even if the donation wasn’t successful (i.e. deferral). Each attempted platelet or plasma donation will count as one donation and won’t be based on the number of units given at one donation. This helps ensure all donors are equally recognized for the time spent making donating platelets a priority. Granulocyte donations will also count toward the program. Whole blood, Power Red and donations taken as ‘sample only’ will not count toward the program.
