 Grand Haven resident wins a “Mother’s Day Out”


Lansing, Mich. – The American Red Cross celebrates Mother’s Day in the Great Lakes Region by rewarding one lucky donor with a “Mother’s Day Out” spa package.  Everyone who came out to donate blood at any Red Cross blood drive or donor center throughout the 65-county region in April had the chance to win a day at a local spa (a value of $125) for Mom.

Laura Anys of Grand Haven, MI was the special “Mother’s Day Out” winner. “I like to donate blood and it’s something that I have always done”, said Anys. “I know that there are always people in need and that is why I do it.”

This May, everyone who comes out to donate will have a chance to win a Meijer $250 gift card for groceries.  In addition, the American Red Cross celebrates Father’s Day in the Great Lakes Region by giving its donors the opportunity to win a “Father’s Day Fixer Upper” gift card to Lowe’s (a $125 value) to give dad a hand up on his home improvement projects. Both promotions are just one way the Red Cross is hoping to encourage all eligible donors to make an appointment to donate blood.
