Anyone who donates blood or platelets will be entered for a chance to win a trip to the Super Bowl LIV. In order to enter, you must donate blood or platelets between Jan. 1-19.

The American Red Cross currently needs all blood types, especially Type O, since the organization has less than a three-day supply.

“The Red Cross appreciates the NFL’s support during this crucial time of year when every donation — and every donor — matters,” said Bernadette Jay, external communications manager for the Virginia Region Red Cross Biomedical Services. “We hope this may inspire some to make regular blood and platelet donation one of their New Year’s resolutions.”

The winner will get two tickets to Super Bowl LIV, entry to the official NFL Tailgate, tickets to the Super Bowl Experience at the Miami Beach Convention Center, round-trip airfare to Miami, three-night hotel accommodations at The Alexander- All Suite Oceanfront Resort and a $500 gift card for expenses, according to a news release from the American Red Cross.

In order to donate blood, the person must present either their blood donor card, driver’s license or two forms of ID, be 17 years old or 16 with parental consent in most states, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in general, good health.

The limit is three entries per donor and the winner will be notified on or around Jan. 24 in an email.
