Preston & Steve are getting ready for their 8th Annual Blood Drive. The Philadelphia Chapter of the American Red Cross Blood Reserves get really low around the July 4th Hoilday and we are calling on you to help.
Set up an appointment time HERE, or call 1-800-RED-CROSS.
**To be eligible to donate you MUST make an appointment PRIOR to NOON on Friday, June 14th and while appointment slots are available. Appointments are limited, once all slots are full, we will not be able to take any more. Walk-ins are NOT permitted, in order to keep the donor flow going.
A confirmation postcard will be sent to donors who make phone appointments. A confirmation email will be sent to donors who make online appointments. Donors should bring their confirmation to the blood drive.
Everyone that makes an appointment, and comes out to donate will receive a commemorative "I Bleed for Preston & Steve" t-shirt and will be eligible to win a pair of tickets to one of this summer's best concerts (the show will be determined soon).
To donate blood you must be in good general health, at least 17 years old and weigh 110 pounds or more. In PA and NJ, 16-year-olds may donate blood with parental consent.
Have a Tattoo? If you got a tattoo in a state or tattoo shop that is NOT regulated, you have to wait 12 months to donate. A regulated facility means they use sterile needles and ink that is not reused. Cosmetic tattoos applied in a licensed establishment in a regulated state using sterile needles and ink that is not reused is acceptable. There are 40 states that currently regulate tattoo facilities. For more information on tattoo requirements, CLICK HERE.
