Blood for ice cream
Wednesday, August 11, 2021 by Tai Moses
That got your attention, didn’t it? That’s the idea behind a campaign from We Are Blood called Pint for Pint. From now through Aug. 14, We Are Blood is offering blood or platelet donors a voucher for a free pint of Blue Bell Creameries ice cream. For those who are wondering, We Are Blood assures donors that “the FDA has found no evidence that Covid-19 can be transmitted via blood transfusion. It is completely safe to donate blood and to receive a blood transfusion.” The organization follows all of CDC’s recommended Covid safety measures. Quantities of ice cream are limited and advance appointments are necessary. Schedule here.
