ERLANGEN, GERMANY - APRIL 27: A recovered Covid-19 patient donates blood plasma for research into Covid-19 antibodies at the medical researcher of the German Center for Immunity Therapy (das Deutsche Zentrum Immuntherapie, or DZI) at the University Hospital Erlangen during the novel coronavirus crisis on April 27, 2020 in Erlangen, Germany. The DZI is among several research facilities across Germany conducting research and tests over whether blood plasma that contains the antibodies from recovered Covid-19 patients might provide a therapy for other Covid-19 patients still battling with the disease. Germany currently has over 150,000 confirmed cases of Covid-19 infection, 103,000 people have recovered and approximately 6,000 people have died. (Photo by Alexander Hassenstein/Getty Images)

The American Red Cross pleads for blood donations as blood supply is at historically low levels. As the supply continues to dwindle, hospitals may be forced to delay care for patients needing blood transfusions for their medical care. Because of this, getting blood donations is essential.
On Tuesday American Red Cross will be offering free Red Cross long-sleeved T-shirts to anyone who donates before Jan. 2 while supplies last.
Those who donate in January will be automatically entered into a drawing for Super Bowl tickets in Los Angeles and a $500 e-gift card. Visit RedCrossBlood.org/SuperBowl.
