Michigan Association of Professional Santas

Calling all Santas... We all know that Santa is a gift giver... I want to encourage all Santas, helpers and friends of Santa to give the Gift of LIFE!!! Donate blood at your local Red Cross... i was just called by the Red Cross and told that there is a tremendous shortage... over 50,000 units short.. and due to the winter weather they have had to cancel over 1500 blood drives... you can find where to donate by calling the Red Cross at 1-800-448-3543... It take little time and it might be the greatest gift that you as a Santa, Mrs Claus or helper have ever given.... So HO HO HOP to it and give it some thought..... and save a life

Thank you Santa Joe !!!

Dear Fellow MAPS members ,

You may not know it , but chances are great that you personally know someone who's life was spared by a blood transfusion !!!

There are places you can give blood 6 , and often 7 days a week !!! ( Just go to http://www.redcross.org/blood ) .

As for me , I am set up to give blood next Friday , March 7 , at Buff Whelan Chevrolet . West side of Van Dyke Ave .. They have a blood drive there on the first Fridays of March , June , September , and December . At least one son , and one grandson is set to give with me . You can walk in , or make an appointment .

Here is a " cut and paste " of an E-mail that they just sent me .


Buff Whelan Chevrolet is looking for some heroes to come out to donate blood on Friday, March 7, 2014, between 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
