Have You Read The One Minute Update?
If you like the blog, you should really be reading our e-newsletter — One Minute Update.
As you might have guessed from the name, it’s short and sweet, and Robin and I do our best to keep the tone as light and informal as what you get right here. This month, for example, I compared our Clara Barton Challenge to gambling in Las Vegas. If the connection isn’t obvious already, you should probably check out the current issue.
Anyway, we encourage you to sign up. We won’t spam you (too much) and we’ll try to keep things fun and fresh. We don’t want to put all this effort into it without you reading!
P.S. We got a very nice comment today from Winnie, an East Coast ARC volunteer: “I love this newsletter! Val’s story brought tears to my eyes.” Really, don’t you want to be reading?

I have been donating blood since when I was 18 yrs of age. I feel the best way to attract today’s youth will be to give them something they can will wear and bring our Red Cross Name out.
I found this shirt posted at this site. Worth looking into and to get more younster and volunteers to join.
Hi Pap! I’m with you on giving the Red Cross a “hipper” look. Did you know that we did a partnership with Threadless not too long ago?
There were a ton of t-shirts that they printed up (Robin actually has one of them) and they were all very cool and attractive to a younger generation. You can see more about it here:
The folks in Blood Services had a pretty cool t-shirt a while back. I’ve been thinking about having a graphic designer re-create it — if we do, you’ll definitely hear about it on the blog!
