December 8th Ithaca College Blood Drive

Contributed by Cynthia Smith

Here is your chance to be charitable this holiday season without spending a dime. Thursday, December 8, in Emerson Suites from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. you can donate your life-saving blood!

There's not a single good reason to donate blood -- there are actually THREE good reasons to donate blood! That’s how many people benefit every single time you give the “Gift of Life." Your blood’s components (red cells, platelets, and plasma) can be separated out to help save hospital patients with a wide range of needs: burn victims, cancer and leukemia patients, trauma cases, and countless others.

So please make an appointment at our blood drive this Thursday, December 8, in Emerson Suites by e-mailing [mailto:redcross@ithaca.edu], or stop by the table Monday or Wednesday in the Campus Center lobby and Tuesday in Textor Hall from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. to schedule your donation time.

You are eligible to donate if you meet the following criteria:

• Are at least 17 yrs old
• Weigh at least 110 pounds
• Your last donation was on or before Dec. 6th.
• You have not traveled abroad since 1980 for more than three cumulative
months in Great Britain or six months cumulative in Europe.

Tips for a Successful Donation:
To improve your donation experience be sure to eat well the day of donation, drink plenty of fluids, and a get a good night's sleep!

Thank you for your generosity and donation!

Together we prepare, together we can save a life!
