The American Red Cross recently declared an emergency blood shortage and a desperate need for donors.
Now, giving blood is going to win someone a trip to one of the biggest sporting events in the world.
Todd James is the executive director of the North Central Ohio Chapter of the Red Cross in Findlay.
He says there are several reasons for the shortage, but the biggest is the pandemic canceled many regularly scheduled blood drives that had trouble getting regular donors to come back.
As an extra incentive, anyone who donates to the Red Cross in January will be automatically entered into a drawing for an all-expenses paid trip for two to the Super Bowl in Las Vegas.
