Columbia, S.C.- The American Red Cross South Carolina Blood Services Region is wishing donors an "Appy" Easter with an Apple iPad 3 giveaway.

All donors during the month of April will automatically be entered for the chance to win a free Apple iPad 3, courtesy of the Red Cross.  

For your chance to win, simply stop by your local Red Cross donation center or blood drive from April 1 to April 30, 2012 to donate blood or platelets. One lucky presenting donor in the South Carolina Blood Services Region will be selected at random to receive an iPad 3.

The need for blood is constant. Even in the spring and summer months, when people are seemingly their healthiest, those with illness, cancer or trauma need our help. The Red Cross encourages donors year-round to help make sure the blood supply in our region remains at adequate levels to provide for those in need. 

For more information or to schedule an appointment to donate, call 1-800-RED CROSS (733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org.
