January is National Volunteer Blood Donor Month, recognizing the wonderful things blood donors do every day to save lives. To celebrate, the names of all donors at our four donor centers during January 2018 will go into a random drawing for 32 pairs of Fandango movie passes.
The drawing will be held Thursday, February 1, 2018, and the sets of movie passes will be mailed by Friday, February 2, 2018. Hurry! The movie passes expire Wednesday, February 28, 2018, so the winners will need to enjoy a movie quickly.

About National Volunteer Blood Donor Month
On December 31, 1969, President Richard Nixon signed Proclamation 3952, designating the month of January as National Volunteer Blood Donor month. In that proclamation, the president wrote, “Genuine concern for his fellow man has always distinguished the American citizen. That concern finds daily expression in countless acts of voluntary service to the less fortunate, the sick, and the injured. No manifestation of this generosity of spirit is more expressive, and no gift more priceless in time of personal crisis, than the donation of one’s blood. The voluntary blood donor truly gives life itself.”
The month of January is an appropriate time to observe this important national event. First, it is traditionally a month of significant need. Elective surgeries are often postponed during the busy holiday season and scheduled during the month of January. As a result, the need for blood donation increases in the first full winter month. In addition, it is a time for declaring resolutions for change in our lives. What better resolution than to donate blood every season – making a lifesaving difference for others?
You can make a real difference in the lives of others by giving blood this month, and then once each season. Let’s celebrate saving lives in January.
