“Aloha” may be used as a greeting, but in the Hawaiian language it means affection, peace and compassion. This summer Community Blood Center (CBC) will affectionately celebrate blood donor compassion with a peaceful, expense-paid Hawaii getaway for two as the grand prize in the “Get on Board – Give Blood Summer Blood Drive.”
The grand prize includes air travel and deluxe accommodations for eight nights at two island locations. All taxes, fees and meals are included. The vacation package also includes pre-paid activities and sight-seeing excursions, plus all ground transportation.
Everyone age 18 and older who registers to donate with CBC from May 4 through Aug. 28 will be automatically entered in the drawing to win the Hawaiian vacation for two. REACH magazine is media sponsor of the “Get on Board – Give Blood Summer Blood Drive.” Eligible donors can enter the drawing a second time when they register for a second donation during the blood drive period. Official rules are available at www.givingblood.org.
Anyone who registers to donate during the campaign will receive a special-edition, Hawaiian surf board design donor gift, beginning with the “Blood Donor Board Meeting” t-shirt. The orange t-shirt features palm trees and a blue surfboard with a “Donate every 56 days” inscription. The t-shirt is free to everyone who registers to donate Monday, May 4 through Saturday, June 13 at any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives.
CBC traditionally encourages blood donations during the challenging summer months with a blood drive campaign to win a car or motorcycle. The “Get on Board – Donate Blood Summer Blood Drive” campaign promises to send a lucky donor and companion across 4,375 miles of land and sea to an island paradise for an eight-day adventure of a lifetime.
The winning donor has the option to transfer the prize to another individual. The trip must be booked 60 days in advance and travel must be completed by Dec. 31, 2016. Value of the trip at time of booking cannot exceed $10,000. Enter by registering to donate at any CBC Donor Center or mobile blood drive. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com.
