There are several things in life I really enjoy; a few of them are free cookies, free t-shirts and prize drawings! Lucky for me, and you Friday, April 27 here at Hotze Health & Wellness Center, the wonderful team from Commit For Life will be here to take blood and plasma donations! I’d love for anyone interested to come on down between 12and 4:30 p.m., hang out with me and get some free swag! Each participant will receive a Commit for Life t-shirt, and a coupon for a free cookie at The Great American Cookie Company! There will also be a raffle for a $10.00 Starbucks gift card and Dr. Hotze’s PowerPak! Plus, the greatest reward of all is that only one pint of blood can save up to three lives! Click here to schedule your appointment!
Here are a few tips to remember if you come to donate next Friday:
- Boost your iron levels by eating fortified cereal, red meat or green, leafy vegetables. The most common reason a person is deferred is low iron count so start adjusting your diet today.
- Get a good night’s sleep prior to donating.
- Eat a hearty meal at least one hour before donating
- Drink at least one 16-ounce bottle of water prior to donating.
