Jaydon asks that you donate to the Red Cross, give blood

Even though he is far too young to give blood Jaydon could not resist the opportunity to get a sticker. So when he saw no one was at the registration table Jaydon ran up to the Red Cross volunteers and with a tone of innocence in his voice the two-year-old posed the question, “sticker?”

The American Red Cross and local media was conducting a blood drive at Northwoods Mall in North Charleston, SC today. The volunteers at the registration table thought Jaydon was cute and asked his name then wrote it onto a donation sticker. Jaydon was very happy.

Jaydon, mommy and daddy have been very lucky not to need the Red Cross but there are thousands of others who are not so lucky. That’s why you need to help by giving blood or donating a little from your pocket. You never know, one day you may need their help.

How to Donate Blood

Simply call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. Blood can be safely donated every 56 days. Platelets can be given every seven days, up to 24 times a year. Most healthy people who are 17 years of age (16 with parental consent) and weigh at least 110 pounds are eligible to donate blood to the Red Cross. Donors who are 18 years and younger must also meet specific height and weight requirements. A Red Cross blood donor card or driver’s license, or two other forms of identification, are required at check-in.
