Exchange Your Blood For Super Bowl 2022 Tickets with Red Cross
WIN Super Bowl Tickets by Donating Blood Platelet or Plasma
Since March 2020 there has been a dangerously low nationwide supply of blood. The shortage due to the spread of COVID-19 and blood drives being canceled is forcing hospitals to make tough decisions like who gets blood and who must wait. A total of 45,000 units of blood are needed daily. This shortage has prompted the American Red Cross to join forces with the NFL in hopes of encouraging people to donate blood.
To encourage donors during the month of January, National Blood Donor Month, those who give blood, platelet, or plasma donations will have a chance to win a trip to Super Bowl LVI on Feb. 13 at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.
Winter weather across the country and the recent surge of COVID-19 cases are compounding the already-dire situation facing the blood supply.
-Dr. Baia Lasky, medical director for the Red Cross
The winner will receive two tickets to Super Bowl LVI along with entry into the official NFL Tailgate, round trip airfare, a 3-night hotel stay, and a $500 gift card.
Tickets, however, are not the only prize donors could win. In addition, donors will also be entered for a chance to win an at-home package, which includes a smart laser projector, projector screen, soundbar, subwoofer, and a $500 gift card.
Those who donate blood, platelet, or plasma during January will automatically be entered to win both the tickets and also the Big Game at Home package.
Please, if you are eligible, make an appointment to give blood or platelets in the days and weeks ahead to ensure no patient is forced to wait for critical care.
