It’s almost ‘that’ time of year again…

Is it just me, or is Halloween not really that scary compared to the weeks after? Each November welcomes large groups of individuals dressed up to support their favorite team, going out to privacy booths to quickly answer some questions and cast their ballot to help decide the victor in a great war. There will soon be no more ducking for cover to avoid the damage. That’s right- the Civil War Blood Drive is almost here! (what did you think I was talking about?)

From November 4th to 20th, those that present to donate at blood drives in Oregon and SW Washington can cast their ballot for the University of Oregon Ducks or the Oregon State University Beavers. All this while supporting the great cause of allowing us to stock up the blood supply before the winter weather and vacation season. Special drives will be held on each campus and through the Alumni Associations, but you can donate at any area drive to show support. You can sign-up to donate now!

Help us promote the campaign to others! Link the following graphic ( on your blog or website to follow updates throughout the campaign. You can also download to print Civil War bookmarks with your teams’ football season schedule and details about the Civil War Blood Drive. The Beavers have won the last two years’, so the Ducks need to rally to the challenge to fly to victory.
