So happy to see that AMC's hit series, The Walking Dead, is part of this year's American Red Cross Blood Drive. What better show to make the point? Okay, maybe True Blood would be just as relevant?
AMC and the American Red Cross have joined forces to raise awareness about the constant need for blood. In the event of a natural disaster or even a zombie apocalypse, it’s the existing blood supply that will help save lives.
AMC is also organizing a special sweepstakes to thank those who support blood donation through the Red Cross. The grand prize is a visit to the set of The Walking Dead in Atlanta, Georgia. Details are available at www.amcgiveblood.com.
Visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) for more information or to schedule a blood donation appointment. All blood types are needed to ensure the Red Cross maintains an adequate blood supply. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Donors must be in general good health, weigh at least 110 pounds and be at least 17 years old (16 in some states with completed parental consent form). Certain height and weight restrictions apply to donors 18 and younger.
