There’s no hiding it: Living expenses have been on the rise, making even daily necessities feel like they’re nearly out of reach. From rent to groceries to gas, inflation on your must-haves is most likely putting pressure on your pocket. Like most, you’re probably looking for ways to cut back on costs and we’d like to help you with that.
Come in to give blood in August and we’ll automatically enter you for a chance to win gas for a year (a $6,000 value)!^ You could be one of three lucky winners. PLUS, you’ll also get a $10 e-gift card to a merchant of your choice.^^
Just think of all the things you could do with the money you’d be saving at the pump! You could take that much-needed vacation, spruce up your home, or stash those savings away for future rainy days. Plus, you can feel good knowing that your one blood donation could help save more than one life. You’d be making a positive impact on the life of a patient, one like Steven, for example.
Steven and his wife, Brooke, were riding their bikes when a man, blinded by the late afternoon sun, drove his pickup truck into them. Brooke was hurt but Steven’s injuries were much more serious. He was bleeding internally and required so much blood that emergency room personnel had to use a special device to transfuse lifesaving blood into his body as quickly and safely as possible. Later, hospital personnel estimated that it took approximately 40 units of blood to stabilize Steven.
“Our family is so grateful to all of the blood donors who made time to share their good health with people they will never even meet,” said the couple’s daughter, Lauren. “I don’t believe any of my family ever thought so much about blood as since this happened, but we are committed to doing everything we can to keep the blood supply strong going forward.”
Helping someone else receive lifesaving care and winning free gas for a year is the definition of a win-win. Can patients like Steven count on you this month? Schedule a blood donation now.
