The NASCAR season is upon us and the Red Cross Racing blood donor competition is back for it’s second season. Red Cross Racing is a collaboration between the American Red Cross and NASCAR. Blood donors can accumulate points by presenting to donate blood at an American Red Cross blood drive. Donors can then report their blood donations on the Red Cross Racing website (http://www.redcrossracing.com/) and exchange their points for NASCAR racing gear and collectibles (like binoculars, shirts, folding chairs, and more). Admittedly, I will never understand the sport of NASCAR, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy helping to save lives and cool prizes (I LOVE prizes!).
NASCAR driver and Red Cross blood donor Greg Biffle has signed on again this racing season as a Red Cross spokesperson. Biffle will help raise awareness to millions of NASCAR fans across the country about the ongoing need for blood donations. (Some of you may remember this highly entertaining series of blogs from last year’s racing season about the relentless kidnappers who took our Greg Biffle [‘s lifesize cardboard cutout].)
So whether you’re a NASCAR fan, or you’re like me and just like to donate blood (and get prizes!), join Red Cross Racing today by visiting redcrossracing.com.
Now that your engines are purring…READY! SET! GO donate blood! And start accumulating those points to exchange for awesome prizes.
