Ran-Man here from the Rolling Home Show on 92.9 WBPM.
A few weeks ago, I sent out an email blast urging our listener to donate blood because both the New York Blood Center and the Red Cross had declared a "blood emergency". They were at a point of crisis with only a 2 to 3 day supply to support all the area hospitals and medical facilities and, while some people have donated in July, it hasn't been nearly enough.
The New York Blood Center and the Red Cross have been DESPERATELY BEGGING people to get out and donate blood no matter what your blood type is.
I'm an advocate for donating blood and I do it as often as I can. When I do it, I think about you ... our listeners ... and I donate to save YOUR life. Think about whose life YOU might save if there was an emergency and they needed blood...especially if you're one of the rare blood types!!!
Look up the Red Cross or the New York Blood Center and find a blood collection event / location near you and give the gift of life by donating blood as often as you can.
This means so much to me personally that I'm EXTENDING MY OFFER ... ok, it's a little bribe ... to encourage you to donate blood in August. If you donate blood between now and the end of August, email me firstname.lastname@example.org with a scan of your paperwork showing the date you donated along with your complete mailing address and shirt size (Large or Xlarge) and I'll send you a WBPM T-shirt. How about that?!!
Let's team up and solve the problem!
***FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST, ANYONE THAT DONATES BLOOD CAN HAVE THEIR NAME PUT INTO A DRAWING FOR A $25 GIFT CARD. ANYONE CAN APPLY, DOCUMENTATION PROOF WILL NEED TO BE PROVIDED.****
