Are you looking for an opportunity to help your fellow man, and look suave doing it? Then this story may be for you. In a press release dated August 22nd, the American Red Cross and Sport Clips Haircuts announced they are teaming up to offer a free haircut coupon to those who come out to donate blood or platelets during September.
Donna M. Morrissey, director of national partnerships, Red Cross Biomedical Services said, “The Red Cross and Sport Clips have partnered for several years to help ensure blood is available for patients in need leading into fall. We are excited to partner once again for this year’s Saving Lives Never Looked So Good campaign and offer a coupon for a free haircut to volunteer blood and platelet donors in appreciation for their lifesaving gift.”
Those who come out to give blood or platelets Sept. 1-30 will receive a coupon for a free haircut via email several days after their donation. The coupon is valid through Nov. 6, 2016, at participating Sport Clips locations, and donors must have a valid email address on record to receive the coupon.
Amanda Palm, corporate communications manager of Sport Clips said, “The need for blood touches so many lives – not just those who need blood, but their family members and loved ones too. This is one way Sport Clips can thank those who give the gift of life to support the lifesaving mission of the Red Cross. They donate blood and we give them a free haircut.”
The Red Cross urges donors of all blood types are to give. They will be at the Hot Springs Fire Department on September 14th, from noon to 6:00 pm.
