Donate Blood for a Chance to Win a Trip to Super Bowl LVIII
The American Red Cross is teaming up with the NFL and giving people a chance to win a trip to the Super Bowl LVIII next month. Recently, the American Red Cross reported that the number of U.S. blood donors hit an all-time low for the past 20 years. People donating blood through the Red Cross have fallen by about 40%. They said they have been facing an emergency blood shortage, and donations are needed to help ensure lifesaving medical procedures proceed without delay.
To combat the donation shortage, they’re partnering with the NFL for the fifth year in a row during National Blood Donor Month this January. They’re inviting football fans and blood donors to join in for a chance to win a trip for two to Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas.
How it works?
People can go to a blood donation site and give blood from now until January 31 to automatically be entered to win the trip to Las Vegas. The winner and guest will get to enjoy Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas, access to day-of in-stadium pre-game activities, tickets to the official Super Bowl Experience, round-trip airfare to Las Vegas, and three-night hotel accommodations from February 9-12, 2024. And the winner will receive a $1,000 gift card for expenses.
Making an appointment.
Those interested can make an appointment to give blood or platelets by visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). You’ll need a blood donor card, driver’s license, or two other types of ID when you check in. If you’re 17 (or 16 with parental consent where it’s allowed), weigh at least 110 pounds, and are generally healthy, you might be able to donate blood. High school students and donors 18 and younger also need to meet specific height and weight criteria that can be found on their website here.
