..and I'll take the ceramic Dalmatian for six points!

June 12, 2012

I received this in my email box today and … well… you tell me.

Bleeding for Prizes!

I’m torn. I guess for some people this will work but for me this is the tackiest thing I’ve seen in a long time. (And I live in New Jersey.)

If the Red Cross really wants me to donate more, here’s how they can do it: respect my appointment time by better staffing the blood drives. Last time I gave blood, my appointment was at noon and my screening didn’t begin until 12:30. I didn’t get on the table until 12:45 which made me late getting back to my office. It was the same way last August and that was in a completely different location.

I don’t give blood for a monetary reward. I give blood because I believe it is the one good thing I can do on this earth. I also give blood for the tasty cookies.

(Stay tuned for a future hypocritical post when I crow about the Barnes & Noble gift certificate I received for giving blood.)
