Sit Back, Relax, and Donate

I’m pretty lazy. I’m not going to lie about it. My lazy tendencies date back to elementary school and the days of long after school couch naps, accompanied by Cheez-its, Bagel Bites and The Simpsons. How many countless hours did I spend zonked out in my parents’ living room? Time wasted? No! Time well spent if you ask me.

Here at the Red Cross we like to encourage active, healthy lifestyles, but we also think you deserve to relax a little every now and then. That’s why we’re giving you the chance to win a free La-Z-Boy recliner or a $499 gift certificate to La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries.

To be eligible to win, all you have to do is present to donate blood or platelets between July 1 and August 31, 2009 at a Red Cross blood drive in the Pacific Northwest area. It’s that easy! We even make entering the contest lazy-person-friendly.

Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t always been totally lazy; I was also active as a dancer growing up and now I “enjoy” running. But when given the choice between playing outside and keeping cozy on the couch, I usually go with couch. One thing I’m definitely not lazy about though? Making an appointment to donate blood. Call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE or visit to make a blood or platelet donation today!
