Save Lives and Look Stylish on World Blood Donor Day

We like to think that each and every one of you exercises regularly, eats five servings of fruits and veggies daily, and gets adequate amounts of sleep at night (right?!). But how many of you regularly donate blood? Maybe not quite as many.

During the summer months, the nation’s blood supply often dips dangerously low as vacation and travel plans soar. So in celebration of tomorrow’s World Blood Donor Day, Nexcare give has partnered with the American Red Cross spokesperson and actress Soleil Moon Frye to launch a season-inspired collection of Nexcare give bandages, reminding you that “it’s always in season to give blood.” This week only, anyone who donates blood at participating American Red Cross locations can score free samples of the bandage collection, and of course, save a few lives at the same time.

Not a bad way to end the week, huh?

To find a blood center near you, check out the Nexcare give Facebook page and donate ASAP. Just this one time, your workout can wait.
