That’s where you come in. We need current platelet donors to become Weekend Warriors. When you do, you’ll be rewarded!


Pledge to donate platelets Friday through Monday three times between March 1, 2014 and May 31, 2014 and you’ll be a Weekend Warrior. When you pledge, you’ll receive a silicone wristband.
