Hello Angels...I have an idea that I got from 2 schools here in SC (USC and Clemson) during football & baseball season they would have a competition by donating blood either at the local Red Cross or another location. They would compete to see which school could bring in the most people to donate blood and the school that won would win bragging rights until the next drive. I thought this was a great idea because not only does it bring more attention to the schools but it helps fills the blood shortage.
So I thought why don't we as Angels have a friendly state wide competition by seeing which state can bring in the most people to donate blood in our local states. The state who brings in the most Angels or people to donate blood will win bragging rights until the next blood drive. We can even host our own blood drive at our local Red Cross. Every 2 seconds someone in the US will need a blood tranfusion, let us be the "Angels" that help save those lives, one pint at a time.
Just by donating one pint of blood you can help save up to 3 lives, the Red Cross needs our help Angels, there is a serious blood shortage around the US & we can help fill that void, you could be that "Angel" that helps save someone's live :0)
Just a little bit of information on the criteria to donate:
You must be at least 17..16 with parental consent in some states
At least 5'1"(for males) 5'5"(for females)
weigh at 130 lbs (For males) 150(for females) *note that some states are different, so just check with your local Red Cross, in SC you have to be at least 117-120lbs*
Let me know what you guys think about this, feedback is always great!!!
If you need more information about donating feel free to ask me or go on the American Red Cross website at www.redcrossblood.org
