Donate blood and win a trip to Hawaii?

Blood donor
Posted at 10:53 AM, Oct 26, 2021

SALT LAKE CITY — COVID-19 has created shortages in countless areas, but one of the most pressing is the need for emergency blood and platlelet donations.

Despite ongoing appeals to the public, the American Red Cross says that additional donors are needed as the busy holiday travel season approaches, with the potential for an increasing number of people needing emergency transfusions.

Currently, the blood supply is the lowest the Red Cross has seen this time of year in more than a decade.

According to the Red Cross, at least 10,000 more donations are needed each week to meeting upcoming needs, despite the increase in blood donations over the last month.

Donors are urged to schedule an appointment by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting its website,  or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). 

In honor of the new series, "I Know What You Did Last Summer," those who donate from November 1-12, 2021, will automatically be entered to win a trip for two to Hawaii (where the series was filmed) courtesy of Amazon Prime Video.

The trip includes round-trip airfare for two, hotel accommodations for nine nights, meals, a $1,000 gift card for expenses, and transportation for tour stops from Honolulu to Maui.

Anyone who donates November 1-23 will receive a $10 Amazon.com Gift Card by email.

Red Cross donation sites follow strict safety standards, and require masks for donors and staff, regardless of vaccination status.

To donate blood, individuals need to bring a blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification that are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age, weigh at least 110 pounds, and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood.

To save time, donors can also complete a RapidPass® form before their appointments with the required health information.

Donors are asked to schedule an appointment prior to arriving at the drive, with locations and times as follows:
