Giving TuesdayThanksgiving. Black Friday. Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday!

We have a day for giving thanks, followed by two for getting deals. Now there is a day dedicated to giving back.

Rex Healthcare will be participating in #GivingTuesday on Tuesday, December 2nd. #GivingTuesday is a day where charities, families, businesses, and communities around the world unite to celebrate generosity and to give.

This #GivingTuesday, we hope that you will join us by making an appointment to donate blood at the Rex Donor Center. Our goal is to have 100 appointments made on December 2nd, with donations to take place before January 2nd. This will help us to secure a consistent blood supply throughout the holidays.

#GIVINGTUESDAY – Why not give blood!

GivingTuesday_BloodOn any given day, blood transfusions are needed for accident victims, patients in surgery, organ transplants and patients receiving treatment for cancer, or other diseases. In fact, even with all the advances in medicine today – when a patient needs a transfusion, there is simply no substitute for a human donor.

The need for blood is great. It is estimated that 95% of the population will receive a blood product by the age of 72 but less than 5% of the eligible population actually gives blood. Each pint of blood you donate can save up to 3 lives! Won’t you please help?

The donation process only takes about an hour, and is completely safe. Your gift will help ensure blood will be available for someone who needs it – even you or someone you love.

Rex Blood Services is located at 2709 Blue Ridge Road, Suite 150 in Raleigh (across from Rex Hospital). Their hours are Monday – Thursday 7:30 am – 6:30 pm, Fridays 8:30 am – 4:30 pm and the first three Saturdays each month from 9 – 1 pm.

To schedule an appointment visit RexHealth.com or call 919.784.4750.
