News Community This holiday, ‘Give Something that Means Something’ with the Red Cross

Holiday shopping can be stressful, but picking out the perfect gift doesn’t have to be that hard. The American Red Cross asks donors to “Give Something That Means Something” this season and be entered for a chance to win a $1,000 gift card useable toward gas, rent, food or a post-holiday getaway.

The Red Cross Carolinas Blood Services Region provides lifesaving blood to patients in 103 hospitals. Approximately 1,600 people need to give blood or platelets each week day to meet hospital demands.

Blood can be safely donated every 56 days. Platelets can be given every seven days, up to 24 times a year. Most healthy people who are 17 years of age, or 16 with parental consent, and weigh at least 110 pounds are eligible to donate blood or platelets to the Red Cross. Donors who are 18 years and younger must also meet specific height and weight requirements.
