Sales, discounts and deals abound this season. But what about making time for real saving … life saving! In about an hour, you can give a gift that can’t be found in stores or online – a blood donation.

The need for lifesaving blood doesn’t pause for the holidays. Between Thanksgiving and the new year, more than 1 million units of blood may be transfused to patients in the U.S. The American Red Cross is calling for donors of all blood types – especially type O – to give this December to help prevent a shortage.

‘Tis the season to give AND receive!
