The organization announced this on its website: redcrossblood.org

"Your donated blood is needed again," notes the American Red Cross. And invites everyone ready to help those in critical need of blood. Your small act could save someone else's life. And for its part, the organization offers future donors bonuses in the form of gifts.

Someone in the promotion will get the chance to spend three nights in New York, in a double hotel room, with a one-night visit to the Long Island Oceanarium for two and a private shark dive. Round-trip airfare is included.

Appointments to donate blood are available online. The campaign, which is organized by the American Red Cross, will last until the end of August. So everyone can find a time that is convenient for them and take an extremely important step to support the health and well-being of others.
