Here at the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks, we know donating blood is a BIG DEAL. This June and July, blood donors have a chance to save lives in our community and make a big deal of their own!

Give blood during our “Let’s Save A Life” promotion and you could win our MYSTERY GRAND PRIZE worth $5,000. Or, you could take home one of our weekly mystery prizes valued at approximately $200!

Here’s how it works:

Let's Save A Life Blood Drive T-Shirt

Give blood, plasma, or platelets at any CBCO blood drive or donor center between June 1 and July 31, 2022. You’ll receive:

  • Our exclusive “Let’s Save A Life” blood drive T-shirt
  • An automatic entry into our weekly mystery prize drawing
  • 1,000 LifePoints, which can be redeemed for additional entries into our weekly prize drawings … AND HERE’S HOW!

Once you’ve donated blood, log into the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks donor portal (click here) to manage your LifePoints balance and choose ONE OF these three great options:

Do nothing! Keep your 1,000 LifePoints and use them for future redemptions.

Redeem your LifePoints for cool stuff in the online store OR donate them to help other local non-profits.

Redeem your LifePoints for additional chances to win weekly mystery prizes (approximately $200 value).

Every 1,000 LifePoints can be redeemed for one additional entry!

Saving lives is a BIG DEAL!

After learning their mystery prize, our nine weekly winners will have a chance to make a BIG DEAL! But first, they’ll have to make a choice…

Keep their prize (valued at approximately $200).

Trade that prize in for a chance to win the MYSTERY GRAND PRIZE valued at $5,000!

Tell them what they’ve won…

All weekly winners who choose to forgo their prize will be entered into another drawing for the $5,000 MYSTERY GRAND PRIZE! We’ll invite all weekly winners to a virtual meeting in August, spin a wheel to pick the GRAND PRIZE WINNER and tell them what they’ve won!
