For the first time in the history of Vitalant promotions, we awarded 24 gift cards, through our 24 in ’24 Blood Donation Extravaganza. Eligible donors who gave from January 6 through February 10 were automatically entered to win a $500 gift card in our Donor Rewards program: Meaning they could choose from various retailers, including, restaurants, clothing stores and specialty stores.

Our fabulous 24 winners were randomly drawn from a pool of 78,538 qualifying donors. They are a variety of ages from across the country and encompass almost every blood type. The one thing these winners have in common is that they made the selfless decision to give a lifesaving blood donation.

Let’s give a virtual round of applause to our 24 winners, listed below in random order:

  • Laureen of Pennsylvania. Laureen has 37 lifetime donations.
  • Tavia of North Dakota. Tavia has 25 lifetime donations.
  • Madyson of Nevada. Madyson has four lifetime donations.
