During Spring Break season 2012, the American Red Cross Blood Donor Centers across the Pacific Northwest Region will have drawings through Monday, April 2, 2012, for all presenting blood and platelet donors*. Daily winners throughout the campaign will receive a $50 Apple gift card and there will be one Grand Prize of a new iPad 3*.

The need for blood is continuous and does not take a Spring Break, or a time off for any other reason. The Red Cross is asking all eligible donors to make an appointment to give blood or platelets. Please schedule a donation today by calling 1-800-RED CROSS, or schedule online at www.redcrossblood.org

* Platelet donor centers are located in Vancouver, Washington, Portland, Oregon, and Richland, Washington.

* Official rules are listed online www.redcrossblood.org/pnw
