Blood Emergency — Donors Needed

Donors are needed now. The RI Blood Center (RIBC) warns that the region has only 1-2 days blood supply on hand. They are even running promotions to help encourage donations, as if enlightened self-interest were not enough of an incentive.

All throughout January, presenting donors will be entered into a weekly drawing to win a $500 e-gift card, and into a monthly drawing to win a mirror home gym with a one year membership!

It’s just the right thing to do if you can, so make an appointment now. If you have questions about your eligibility to donate, you can email the medical team at They can also be reached by phone at 401.453.8383.


Dr. Oz update: I am happy to see that the name of Dr. Oz is no longer on the homepage. They still have the announcement of the RIBC teaming up with this charlatan ostensibly to raise awareness of the need for blood donations. Anyone paying the least bit of attention would realize that what he was doing was raising awareness of his political ambitions.

We wrote this up in November. I would think that the medical professionals working for the RIBC would insist on severing all connection with, and mention of, this dangerous idiot.
