Cascade Regional Blood Services - FREE PINT OF BEER - ONGOING
STATE OF WASHINGTON


ABOUT
Give Blood Get Beer is a theme for a series of blood drives conducted by Cascade Regional Blood Services that enables local restaurants and pubs to support our community in a unique and fun way. CRBS brings a bloodmobile to the sponsoring business for a Pint-for-Pint blood drive around lunch time or early afternoon. All registered donors receive a prepaid coupon for a pint of beer that can be redeemed beginning the day following the drive.


HOW IT BEGAN
Cascade Regional Blood Services started Give Blood Get Beer with a Pint-for-Pint Blood Drive in September 2008 at The Swiss in Tacoma. Because The Swiss Pub was already supporting the community in a variety of ways, they were a great initial partner to help us promote the fact that blood donations are always needed. The calendar quickly filled that first year, with five other establishments booking Pint-for-Pint Blood Drives. Drives were spaced every 56 days to give donors the opportunity to donate the maximum number of times allowed.


WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE GOING TO A PINT-FOR-PINT BLOOD DRIVE
================================================== ==============
MAKE AN APPOINTMENT: You may make an appointment by calling 1-877-24-BLOOD. Walk-ins are always welcome.

PREPARE: Before donating blood, be sure to eat well and drink plenty of non-caffeinated beverages.

AT THE DRIVE: The bloodmobile will be parked in front of, or near the sponsors location. When they register to donate, donors will receive their pre-paid coupon that can be redeemed for a pint of beer at the sponsors location beginning the following day.

REDEEMING YOUR COUPON: As always, CRBS recommends abstaining from caffeine, alcohol or tobacco prior to donating, and at least 4-6 hours after donating. The pre-paid coupon is redeemable beginning the following day. The expiration date is set by the drive sponsor.

SCHEDULE YOUR NEXT APPOINTMENT FOR ANOTHER PINT-FOR-PINT BLOOD DRIVE:
Be sure to schedule your appointment for the next blood drive! When donors register for their third Pint-for-Pint Blood Drive, they will receive their promotional Give Blood Give Beer t-shirt.
