The Kentucky Blood Center (KBC) is encouraging students to give blood this month by offering a free t-shirt for every person who donates. The March Madness themed t-shirts say “Bleed Blue in the Bayou”. This year’s NCAA Final Four will be held in New Orleans and the shirts are aimed to support the Wildcats on their quest to make it back to Louisiana.
Executive director of Marketing and Recruitment has been quoted as saying, “We know many of our donors are excited about the Cats in March and we are, too. But we can’t forget our mission of providing life-saving blood products to Kentucky patients who need transfusions. We hope our special Bleed Blue T-shirts will encourage donors to come see us – then they can wear their shirts to support the Cats.”
