In an effort to keep blood donation levels from falling through the summer months the American Red Cross is offering gas incentives to those who donate blood.
Northern Ohio Blood Services Region
From June 1 to September 1, 2008 if you donate blood you will automatically be entered to win one of five $500 gas cards or the grand prize, “Gas For a Year”.
The grand prizes will be one pre-paid gasoline card and the amount determined using the national average of estimated annual gasoline usage during one calendar year for the typical non-commercial vehicle. Five additional winners will each receive a $500 gas card.
Penn-Jersey Blood Services Region
Every day through September 30, 2008, the American Red Cross will raffle a $50 gas card to a blood donor in the Penn-Jersey Blood Service Region, which includes the Northern New Jersey Chapter
South Carolina Blood Services Region
Now through September 30, 2008, the American Red Cross will enter your name into a raffle for donating blood for a chance to win one of three $1,000 gas cards.
Nationally, other offers and drawings to win free gas are occuring. To see if your region is participating go to RedCross.org, enter your zip code, and find your regions website. Give blood and win free gas before this deal closes at the end of the summer.
