Donate & DIY Sweepstakes
- Wendy C. – Milwaukee, Wisconsin
“Since I am a universal donor, I understand how valuable my blood is and I am honored to donate whenever I can.”
- Cindy H. – Fishers, Indiana
“Donating blood is easy, painless, and just the right thing to do. I’m thankful that my donations are helping someone in need. Every time I donate, I feel thankful that I can give blood and for the staff who’s collecting donations. I also leave feeling hopeful that in some way another person will benefit from it.”
- Joseph B. – Holland, Michigan
“Since I was old enough, I’ve been donating intermittently as an easy way to help others in need. When my wife’s cousin passed unexpectedly, his parents asked family and friends to donate blood in lieu of flowers or donations. Since then, donating has become a regular part of our family’s routine and we go every eight weeks. I’m grateful to be able to participate in honoring his memory and saving lives.”
Drive to Save Lives Sweepstakes
- Steven H. – Milwaukee, Wisconsin
“I donate blood because of my wife. She has type O blood and has been a blood donor long before we began dating. She encouraged me to donate with her and we have been donating for the last twenty years. We both feel that it is a pretty simple way to help people, and we wish that more people would do it.”
- Linda B. – Carmel, Indiana
“Giving blood for me is an anonymous way to help others in need. It’s a small sacrifice on my part that I hope makes an impact for individuals or families that may be dealing with serious medical issues.”
September Rush in to Donate Sweepstakes
- Kristin C. – Plainfield, IL
"I donate because I want to make sure that people who need blood transfusions have access to it. I have the rarest blood type, so I like to think about if I were ever to need a blood transfusion, someone would be kind enough to donate. I’ve also donated plasma and platelets because I know they are important to people with certain health issues."
- Russell D. – Zionsville, IN "I donate blood because it is quick and easy, and it saves people’s lives."
- Kenneth S. – Saint Helen, MI "I donate blood because I feel it’s the least I can do to help other people. I feel bad for anyone that needs help and blood can help people in need."
- Stacie R. – Leesburg, OH "I donate to save lives and provide critical resources for medical treatments, surgeries, and emergencies for those in need."
- Jennifer P. – Cudahy, WI "I donate blood because I love to help people. Another reason is that I have B- blood and it’s one of the rarest types that is often needed. As a breast cancer survivor who has gone through many surgeries, having blood in case of an emergency is really important."
August Home Entertainment Sweepstakes
- James C. – Indianapolis, IN
"Donating platelets is a way to help people in a tough spot. I like to think I’m helping make the world a better place, one donation at a time."
- Allison W. – Galloway, OH
"I donate because it’s easy, fast, and convenient to do. I also have one of the more rare blood types. There is only about 2% of the population who have it, so I want to make sure that those people who need it have it available. I like knowing that my donations have benefitted others."
- John B. – Saint Charles, IL
"I have donated blood off and on for years throughout my life. I got back into the habit because my son’s friend was diagnosed with leukemia just after graduating high school. I heard he needed blood transfusions as part of his treatment. So I signed up for a local blood drive in my neighborhood. It was a chance to be a hero to someone, even if in just a minor way, and seemed like a pretty good reason to me."
A Year of Streaming Sweepstakes
- Rebecca C. - Elgin, IL
"I donate because it's an easy way to care for others. Being a universal and neonatal donor, I love knowing that my blood will quickly be used to help those who need it most!"
- Kenneth W. - Westerville, OH
"I give blood for many reasons, but one is the hope to help save another person."

Brian G. - Mayfield, WI
"I choose to donate blood because as a living kidney donor I want to continue to help other people as long as I can."
Kimberly B. - Saginaw, WI
"I donate blood because it is a simple thing I can do to help save lives. The fact that I have O Negative blood makes it even more special knowing I can make a difference for ANYONE! I like to do the things that may seem small, but have a big impact on someone else's life."
