Heartland Blood Centers to Launch 12 Days of Giving Blood Drive Today

WHAT: Shoppers at Woodfield Mall will prove that it truly is better to give than to receive, by making life-saving blood donations during Heartland Blood Center’s 12 Days of Giving Blood Drive. In return for their donation, each participant will receive special thank-you items, from gift cards to free gift wrapping and more. As part of this effort, several of Woodfield Mall’s nearly 300 retail, dining and entertainment venues will offer giveaways:

  • Dessert coupons from the recently opened Kinfork (daily)
  • Raffles and coupons from Rogers & Holland (daily)
  • VIP passes to Improv Comedy Club (December 19)
  • Free 30-minute game cards from Level 257 (December 22)
  • Free appetizer coupon from P.F.Chang’s (December 24 and 31)

WHY: 12 Days of Giving, the largest blood drive by the area’s leading blood center, will take place from December 18 – 31 with a goal of recruiting more than 2,000 blood donors. Since each donation can save up to 3 lives, Heartland Blood Centers’ mission during the 12 Days of Giving is to touch 6,000 lives. Donors can make an appointment in advance at

WHEN: Friday, December 18 – Thursday, December 31
