Date:2/9/2008

Saturn National Donor Day - What better Valentine's Day gift than the "gift of life?"

WASHINGTON, Feb. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Since 1998, Saturn retailers nationwide have held more than 1,900 community donor drives, most on or near Valentine's Day, in conjunction with local blood center partners as part of Saturn National Donor Day. One of America's largest annual community-wide one-day donor drives, the launch will be hosted by Cavender's Saturn of San Antonio and the South Texas Blood and Tissue Center. The campaign celebrates its 11th anniversary with nearly 2,000 planned community donor drives aimed at raising awareness and encouraging blood, marrow, organ and tissue donation throughout the month of February.

"We are proud that Saturn National Donor Day is our premier annual community service project and that we continue to build on the idea that random acts of kindness truly promote steps toward making the world a better place," notes Jill Lajdziak, Saturn General Manager. "In 2008, a Saturn retailer somewhere in America, in collaboration with its local blood bank partner, will likely collect our 250,000th unit of blood since we started in 1998, and we are optimistic that we will surpass our 12,000th potential marrow donor to the National Marrow Donor Program Registry."

There are three key components to Saturn National Donor Day - each serves as a community call to action to help save lives.

-- Blood donation - Each day, approximately 39,000 units of blood are needed to save the lives of thousands of Americans. Every pint of donated blood is separated into its components and distributed to hospitals to help save the lives of up to three patients. One pint, three lives. Supplies are often critically low during the winter months when most Saturn community donor drives are held. To help donors locate Saturn drives, http://www.saturn.com will begin listing the locatio
