Vitalant Hosts “Save the Humans” Campaign
SAN ANGELO, TX-- Vitalant is hosting a "Save the Humans" campaign this month.
Vitalant’s three spokes-animals (an Instagram-famous cat, a French bulldog and a tiny-but-mighty hedgehog) are coming together to encourage people to help others this month through the simple act of donating blood as part of their “Save the Humans” campaign.
“Happy 2019 humans! Your furry friends want you to start your new year off on the right foot by becoming a life-saver through the simple act of donating blood. We love you and need our best friends around,” said Coby, the effort’s Instagram-famous spokescat.
Vitalant is one of the nations leading blood donations, but in January cold and snowy weather can lead to the cancellation of blood drives and donors often become too sick to donate due to cold and flu season.
“National Blood Donor Month is a critical time for people to donate, and we hope that people of all ages will start the New Year by realizing their life-transforming potential of giving blood. These vital donations truly transform lives in communities across the United States.”, said Vitalant President and CEO Dave Green.
You can come donate blood at San Angelo's local Vitalant at 2020 W Beauregard Ave.
