In January of this year the American Red Cross declared its first ever “Blood Crisis” amidst waning donation levels and a greater need for blood. Growing up the daughter of a registered nurse who worked in the donation center at Dana Farber Cancer Hospital in Boston, I saw first hand from a young age how pivotal the act of both donating and receiving life-saving platelets could be in a person’s life.
In an effort to pay it forward and to boost blood donations, Dingo’s will be offering half-off a day of daycare to any client who donates blood between now and the end of the year. Proof of donation is required to receive the discount.
