Red Cross Offering Amazon Gift Cards To Blood Donors

The Red Cross needs people to donate blood and it's willing to pay for it.  The Red Cross is now offering Amazon gift cards to people who donate blood or blood platelets.  

The offer is good starting today through August 30th.  The nation is facing a severe mid-summer shortage of all types of blood.  

A Red Cross spokeswoman says the organization needs to collect more than 13-thousand donations a day, worldwide, to prevent a shortage.  

She says summer is a challenging time for donations because many people who usually give blood are traveling.
