Red Cross Offering Gas For Blood

Lucky Winner Will Get $3,500 In Gasoline


PHILADELPHIA -- American Red Cross officials are offering the chance to win free gasoline as an incentive to get more Pennsylvania and New Jersey residents to donate blood.
This summer, each donor will automatically be entered in a drawing to win $3,500 worth of gasoline. Entries for the first drawing, July 23, are already being accepted. An identical raffle will start July 23 and run through Sept. 16.
Every day, the Red Cross also will award a $25 gas card to a randomly selected donor

The Red Cross chapter runs about 25 blood drives each day throughout southeastern Pennsylvania and parts of New Jersey. During summers, it struggles to get blood donations.

To donate, residents must be healthy, be at least 17 years old and weigh at least 110 pounds. They can donate blood every 56 days.

For years, inner city clinics paid winos for their blood knowing full well they were going to booze up the money as soon as they left. When you filled up, you could have a sticker that said, "Gas! I'll bleed for it!"

But that's the thing -- how many will die as a result of using more gasoline?
