NORMAN -- Blood donors can show their community and school spirit by donating with Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) Wednesday, Oct. 31. Little Axe High School is sponsoring a blood drive from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., at 2000 168th Avenue, Norman.

Each blood donor will receive the choice of a free University of Oklahoma or Oklahoma State University blood donor T-shirt and a chance to win a pair of tickets to the 2012 Bedlam football game.*

Oklahoma Blood Institute exclusively provides every drop of blood needed by patients in all hospitals in the metro-OKC area. Some 140 other medical facilities across the state rely solely on OBI donors to provide life-saving blood for their patients.

Any donor who prefers to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals -- locally, Children’s Hospital Foundation -- can forgo the T-shirt. In turn, Oklahoma Blood Institute will make a monetary donation of similar value to Children’s Hospital Foundation. It’s a chance to ‘doubly give’ to local children battling critical health conditions – through the life-saving gift of blood and support for pediatric medical research, community outreach and treatment initiatives.
