Be a good cookie. Get a good cookie.

It might not be the holiday season quite yet, however if you see new messages from elves it is worth while to heed what they have to say! That is because the Keebler elves have come out to remind you to donate blood, a message you will likely see on select packages at retailers.

Keebler and the American Red Cross have teamed up to make sure the good deed of donating blood doesn’t go unappreciated. When you are a good cookie and give blood with the American Red Cross, you’ll be recognized with a Keebler cookie. After all, one good cookie deserves another!

This is incredibly good news if, like me, this time of year puts you in Girl Scout Cookie withdrawal. Keebler is part of Kelloggs baking unit, which also provides the Western United States troops with their cookies. That means your donation could lead to a Grasshopper (similar to a Thin Mint), Coconut Dream (similar to a Samoa), or any of the other amazing Keebler creations! In case of an extreme emergency, I do keep frozen Girl Scout cookies at the back of my freezer just in case (be prepared!).
