LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - You can help by donating to the Red Cross Giving Day on Wednesday, March 22nd. In moments of heartbreak, your gift gives hope by providing shelter, food, relief items, emotional support and other assistance. Every eight minutes a disaster will happen to families across the country, and your support of the American Red Cross helps ensure they don’t face these crises alone.

Per the Red Cross, there are three ways you can contribute:

Donate Lifesaving Blood

Schedule an appointment to give lifesaving blood HERE. All who come to give blood, platelets or plasma through the end of March will receive a $10 Visa® Prepaid Card by email. Plus, all donors will be automatically entered for a chance to win a $3,000 Visa Prepaid card. Five winners will be randomly drawn.


Ninety percent of the Red Cross workforce are volunteers. Your time and talent can make a real difference in people’s lives. Find out about volunteer opportunities near you by clicking HERE.

(You can even make your contribution to the Red Cross from your annual state income tax return. Simply complete Form 4642 and include it with your other tax documents.
