Give Blood in September & Get a Free Haircut from Sport Clips

The American Red Cross and Sport Clips Haircuts are teaming up to offer a free haircut coupon to those who come out to donate blood or platelets during September.

“We are pleased to partner with Sport Clips Haircuts in September nationwide, and through their generosity, offer a coupon for a free haircut to thank our amazing volunteer blood donors for their lifesaving gift to help patients in need,” said Donna M. Morrissey, director of national partnerships, Red Cross Biomedical Services.

Those who present to give blood or platelets Sept. 1-30 will receive a coupon for a free haircut via email a few days after their donation. The coupon is valid through Nov. 8, 2015, and donors must have a valid email address on record to receive the coupon.

“A sufficient blood supply is a community-wide responsibility, and Sport Clips is proud to continue our partnership with the Red Cross to raise awareness of the need for blood and platelet donations,” said Margaret Briscoe, corporate communications manager for Sport Clips. “This is Sport Clips’ way of saying ‘thank you’ to those who support the Red Cross’ important mission.”

Donors of all blood types – especially types O negative, A negative and B negative – and platelet donors are urged to give. To make an appointment to donate, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org/sport-clips or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
