american-red-crossSummer is 100 days of high dives, ball games and barbecues.  It’s 100 ways to dress a burger, catch some shade, or get out of town.  It’s 100 chances to clear the calendar and help save lives.  Make donating blood with the Red Cross part of your summer plans. Read amazing stories, participate in promotional giveaways and stay inspired all summer long at redcrossblood.org/100days. Take a selfie of yourself donating blood and share at #ChooseYourDay.  Make this a great summer for you and the patients relying on lifesaving blood.  Remember 1 donation can help up to 3 different patients.  Don’t take a vacation from donating blood…..patients don’t.
