TOLEDO, Ohio — The American Red Cross and "Wonder Woman 1984" are joining forces to save the day for patients in need of lifesaving blood transfusions. The Red Cross is organizing a giveaway from the new Warner Bros. film.
Those who donate blood between July 1 and July 31 will be entered for a chance to win a "Wonder Woman 1984" movie prop replica package. The package includes the Golden Lasso and a pair of gauntlets identical to Wonder Woman's from the film.
While supplies last, if you donate blood before July 8, you will also get a free exclusive "Wonder Woman 1984" t-shirt.
The Red Cross has an urgent need for blood donors this summer, as the COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented supply challenges amid this uncertain environment. Additionally, despite states lifting stay-at-home orders and reopening, many blood drives at businesses and community organizations continue to be cancelled as these locations remain closed or restrict the number of individuals at any location.
"Wonder Woman 1984" is set to hit movie theaters on October 2.
“In times of crisis, new superheroes often emerge, and new alliances are forged. The Red Cross is thrilled to partner with "WONDER WOMAN 1984" to encourage and thank fans and blood donors alike for being superheroes for patients in need by giving blood in July,” said Paul Sullivan, senior vice president of the American Red Cross Biomedical Services. “Blood donors have a unique super power—lifesaving blood. Blood cannot be manufactured, and donors are the only source for patients in need.”
