PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With the holiday season in full swing, it's time for family and friends to come together and enjoy this special time of year. As we make our plans to celebrate, there is one to-do that isn't on many lists: Donating blood.

Donors who give blood this holiday season will give the gift of life to a hospital patient in need and might get something special in return.

In an effort to boost blood donations between Dec. 22nd and Jan. 4th, all presenting blood donors from American Red Cross Penn-Jersey Region mobile blood drives, blood donation centers, and donation buses will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 Super Certificate redeemable at GiftCertificates.com for original gift certificates from hundreds of stores, hotels, airlines, restaurants, theaters and more.

"Giving blood is giving the greatest gift of all, the gift of life," says Brigid O'Neill-LaGier, Chief Executive Officer of the American Red Cross Penn-Jersey Region.

Blood drives are held seven days a week in communities across the region. To make an immediate appointment for an American Red Cross blood drive this week, please call 1-800-GIVE LIFE (1-800-448-3543), or visit www.pleasegiveblood.org to find a listing of community blood drives.
