If you’re like me, and the sight of blood makes you a little queasy, well then turn the other cheek while donating next week. Nexcare Brand and America’s Blood Centers have joined forces on the second annual “give program”, a nationwide blood donation initiative kicking off on World Blood Donor Day, Monday, June 14th through Sunday, June 20th.
World Blood Donor Day comes at a time when there is typically a shortage of blood donations because of seasonal distractions and summer vacations. So put your beach day on hold and head to your local donation center for the afternoon to help make a difference in someone’s life.
There’s also a dedicated website, http://www.nexcaregive.com, where you can share your story, get directions to your local blood center and register to receive coupons and a free sampling of the special, patriotic “give” bandages that were designed specifically for the cause.
