Blood donors could win iconic ‘Game of Thrones’ item

April 3, 2019

The American Red Cross is encouraging donors to give blood or platelets during National Volunteer Month this April by offering a little extra incentive in honor of the final season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”

Those who come to donate blood by April 30 will be automatically entered for a chance to win a full-size Iron Throne from “Game of Thrones.” Terms and conditions apply and are available at RedCrossBlood.org/HBOGameofThrones . Additionally, all presenting donors from April 11 to 30 will receive a commemorative Bleed For The Throne poster, while supplies last, and automatically be entered in the sweepstakes.

While donors of all blood types are needed, the Red Cross currently has a severe shortage of type O blood donations and urges type O donors to give now.

Make an appointment to help save lives now by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 800-733-2767.
