Have you signed up for this Friday's Blood Drive yet? We haven't signed up as many donors as we had hoped for, which worries me. So to entice you to call or email to sign up you and your friends, I'm going to give you a little peek into the world of goodness you gain entry into by signing up.
One thing we didn't count on last time was that people were denied because of health reasons, such as anemia, or for stupid ones like, they've engaged in gay sex. To counter that we now have Club 86, for those who make the effort to donate blood, but through no fault of theirs, were not able to donate. All members of Club 86 are entered into a raffle for a $100 gift certificate to Patina at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Last time, there were maybe 25-30 people who weren't able to donate, so the chances are good for winning. Also, every hour there will be a raffle for $50 gas cards and other $50 gift certificates.
As if that wasn't enough incentive, we've had a new addition to the contents of the goodie bag that all the donors receive. Dr. Phil (through my dear friend Gabrielle) was nice enough to donate copies of his new book, Love Smart: Find the One You Want -- Fix the One You Got. So if you don't have a significant other, donate blood, read the book, have some lunch (lunch is provided for all donors), and try out what you've learned later that night at the after-party at Cole's.
We haven't yet finalized what's going in the goodie bags, so if you have something to promote and want to reach that elusive, hip, downtown crowd - here's your chance. Email me if you want to promote your business or services via the goodie bag, or if you just want to donate some goodies and help us out.
