Make an Arrangement to Help Save Lives

The Red Cross and Edible Arrangements®, the pioneer and leader in artistically designed fresh fruit displays and chocolate dipped fruit, are partnering during the month of August to “Make an Arrangement to Help Save Lives.”

During the month of August, all presenting blood donors at American Red Cross blood drives will receive a free coupon* for a free box of six pieces of chocolate dipped fruit as a thank you for coming in to donate blood at a time when blood donations tend to drop due to hot weather, school vacations and holiday travel.

“Edible Arrangements® is proud to partner with the American Red Cross and to thank donors for giving the gift of life, we will give the gift of delicious chocolate dipped fresh fruit,” stated Tariq Farid, CEO of Edible Arrangements International, Inc.

The Red Cross asks eligible blood donors to make or keep appointments to give blood this summer to help maintain a stable blood supply for ongoing or emergency needs. The need for blood does not take a vacation and few summer activities feel as good as helping to save lives by donating blood.

To find an Red Cross blood drive near you, please call 1-800-RED CROSS or visit today to make an appointment to donate blood.
