Give and get this World Blood Donor Week
June 14 is World Blood Donor Day, designed to bring awareness of the need for safe blood products and to thank donors.
This year, Whataburger and Bill Miller Bar–B-Q are teaming up with The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center (STBTC) for World Blood Donor Week, which will be June 14-20. All STBTC blood donors who schedule an appointment through Eventbrite and show the email confirmation during their donation will receive a Whataburger or Bill Miller Bar–B-Q $10 gift card, while supplies last. Donors can make an appointment by going to SouthTexasBlood.org/BloodDonorWeek.
Each summer, community blood supplies drop across the nation as high school students and frequent donors go on vacation.
As an additional incentive for World Blood Donor Day, all donors will receive a NexCare limited-edition “Give Where You Live” bandage to display as a badge of honor. Donors are encouraged to take a selfie with the bandage and share it on social media using the #GiveInspires.
