|Type O Negative And B Negative Donors Your Help Is Needed|
(Nashville, TENN. January 10, 2012) Due to a drop in blood donations over the holidays, the current supply of type O negative and type B negative blood has declined at the American Red Cross. Donations from donors with type O negative and B negative blood are needed now!
All presenting donors will be entered to win a $1,000 home improvement gift card and through January 13, presenting donors will also be entered to win a tablet computer valued at $500.
