American Red Cross Offers Incentive To Stave Off Critical Blood Donation Shortage

(Springfield, IL)  --  Donating your blood could land you a trip to Disney World, courtesy of the American Red Cross.  The organization is experiencing its lowest levels of summer blood donations in 12 years.  Theresa Kuhlmann, spokesperson for the Heart of America Blood Services Region, says summer donations don't usually dip this low.

Anyone who gives blood is automatically entered into a drawing to win a trip for four to Orlando.  The Red Cross hopes this will provide some incentive for people to help rebuild the blood supply.  To find a blood donation center near you go to redcrossblood.org.
