During the holidays it's about finding the perfect gift.  The perfect gift for that person you love.  The thing about finding the perfect gift is, that gift will probably be in a drawer or closet by the time it is all said and done.   What if I told you that you could give a gift that would never be forgotten or thrown in a closet.  A gift that doesn't cost anything.

It's the gift of life.  The one gift you can give this holiday season that could mean the difference between life or death, is blood.   Giving blood doesn't cost money, just an hour of your time.  The pint of blood could save the life of a child, someone's parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or best friend.

During the holiday season and around Thanksgiving and Christmas the blood supply becomes low because everyone is rushing around to make sure their holidays are perfect.

This Friday, after you hit the stores before the sun comes up and you find all the great deals.  I encourage you to make one last stop and that is the gift of life.

Join the Coffee Memorial Blood Center for their Holiday Open Blood Drive at Wolflin Square.  They will be set up at 1936 Civic Circle in the former Consignments Treasures shop from 10am-5pm.

Plus, bring the kids and come have Cookies and Mil with Santa from 11-1pm.  Don't forget your camera so you can capture some fun pictures.

Those that donate will receive a fun and festive long sleeve t-shirt, a coupon for a gallon of Plains Dairy milk, a coupon for a free egg roll from Chop Chop, 2 passes to Cinergy Entertainment, be entered to win a $100 Visa gift card and other prizes from Wolflin Square merchants.  Plus, several Wolflin Square merchants will be offering a discount for blood donors.

The best gift you can ever give is by saving the life of another and all that takes is donating blood.
