Remarkable Ro donors earn rewards for reaching milestones


Join Denena Edwards in making an impactful donation. Versiti created The Beacon Club Ro program to show our appreciation for you.  

“It’s my mission to drive results and cultivate the change we want to see,” says loyal Ro blood donor Denena Edwards. “If you know you’re an Ro donor, donate now (and tell your family, because they could be too). If you don’t know, donate to find out – Versiti might need you!”

As an Ro blood donor, you are special, you serve a unique need, and you have the extraordinary power to save the lives of patients in your community. The remarkable Ro blood type is found in only 4% of our donors and is vital for the many patients with sickle cell disease who rely on frequent transfusions of this matched blood. Evidence shows that patients often have the best reaction when they receive transfusions from people with similar genetic backgrounds.

In appreciation for your loyal donations during a single calendar year (January 1 – December 31), we’ll celebrate your donation milestones with some special gifts just for Ro donors.


After each donation milestone, you will receive: 

  • 2nd Donation: $10 egift card 
  • 4th Donation: Ro Sweepstakes entry for $300 gift card. See official rules
  • 6th Donation: Custom Versiti 2022 Ro donor shirt 

2022 Ro donor Shirt form will open November 1st, 2022.

All of these gifts are in addition to the benefits you receive for being part of The Beacon Club for all Versiti donors.


Every day, patients in your community need blood transfusions to survive and thrive. They rely on the generosity of donors like you, who help ensure a safe, healthy blood supply. Make an appointment to donate blood today.

Lifetime donations is how many times the donor has donated over their lifetime. Gallons are the overall result of all donations. Each whole blood donation is about a pint of blood. There are eight (8) pints in a gallon. For example: If you donated 32 times you have reached your 4th gallon milestone donation.
