The 'Donate for Life' program was created by REX Blood Services to help promote timely and consistent blood donations. Not only can you help to save a life with your donation, but by participating in the program you can earn fun rewards.
How do I Participate?
It is easy to participate in the 'Donate for Life' program. If you're already a REX blood donor you can start earning points right away.
If you are not currently a REX blood donor, contact 919-784-4750 to schedule an appointment to donate blood or platelets.
Donate and Earn Points
The more you donate, the more points you will earn!
For each whole blood donation you will earn 100 points. Be sure to keep an eye on our donation calendar – some days will earn you double points.
For each apheresis or platelet donation you will earn 300 points.
Redeem Points for Rewards
Once you earn points, you can redeem them for items in the Donate for Life Gift Store.
Donate for Life Rewards include t-shirts, gift cards, electronics and more!
Remember – your points never expire and will carry over each year.
Are you a high school student who donates blood? You may be eligible to participate in the REX Red Cord Program.
The Red Cord Program was created to recognize a student’s commitment to supporting the community through their life-saving blood donations. If approved by the school, graduating high school seniors can wear a red cord along with their cap and gown at graduation.
If you are a senior graduating from a participating high school and would like to request a red cord to wear during your graduation, please fill out the request form. A representative from REX Blood Services will respond to your request.
Enjoy a free lunch when you make a donation at REX Donor Center from Noon - 2 pm on Mondays and Fridays.
Lunch will be catered to the Blood Donor Center from a variety of partner restaurants. Be sure to check the schedule to see who is providing food each week.
