The American Red Cross says it is experiencing an emergency blood shortage, so all blood or platelets donors from July 29 through August 29 will receive a $5 Amazon.com gift card.

The organization says it currently has less than a three-day supply of most blood types available and less than a two-day supply of type O blood.

For more information you can call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit RedCrossBlood.org. You can also schedule an appointment to donate by activating Amazon’s Alexa Red Cross Blood Skill by saying, “Alexa, find a blood drive.”
