When it comes to giving blood the American Red Cross leads the fight everyday to help refuel the blood supply.

To sweeten the process the Red Cross has teamed up with Indy Car to put together a great incentive in April for you to give the gift of life.

People who donate either blood or platelets from April 1st thru April 15 will get placed into a drawing to score a VIP trip to the 2022 Indy 500, this trip is a trip for four and anyone who donates during that time will automatically be in to win.

In addition to that great prize pack, anyone who donates during the whole month of April 2021 will be entered in for a chance to score a e-gift card to the place of your choice, in the amount of $1000 and they have 5 of those to bust out....why not you?

However, even though those are great incentives to give blood, they don't compare to the life saving donation that every blood donor is making. That is really what it is all about.

If you would like to see where the closest blood drive is to you so you can save a live and maybe score a great trip to the Indy 500, visit RedCrossBlood.org or you can call as well 800-773-2767
