Red Cross Issues Emergency Appeal For Blood Donations, Also Offers Free Cedar Point Tickets

Posted By on Fri, Jul 7, 2017 at 2:01 PM

UPDATE: This week, the American Red Cross has issued an emergency appeal for donations of blood or platelets.

Thanks to this warm time of year, when schools are on break and families go on vacations, the Red Cross of the Northeast Ohio region has seen a sharp decline in donations. The organization would like anyone who is eligible to consider donating blood soon.

For those looking for an added incentive, besides feeling good about yourself, the Red Cross previously announced that blood donors could score free Cedar Point tickets at various times and locations through the end of July (see below).

Unbeknownst to us, the Red Cross has an extra incentive for you to so in the coming months: a free Cedar Point ticket, which isn't anything to shake a needle at.
