So we lost to them at football and hockey. It's time to reclaim victory. We need YOU to come to the Yale-Harvard Blood Drive Challenge, hosted by the American Red Cross at Yale, February 1st through 4th! Last year, we blew away the competition by collecting 301 units of blood to Harvard's 198. This time, with your help, we hope to do even better!

Plus, the Red Cross currently has an EMERGENCY NEED for blood, particularly type O negative, to meet both local and international demand. Connecticut alone is experiencing a severe blood shortage, so your donation is greatly appreciated. One pint of blood can save three lives. Please take this opportunity to make a difference and support a great cause!

PLEASE NOTE: The Yale-Harvard Drive will run from 1 to 6:30 pm on Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 1-2, in the Sterling Library Lecture Hall, and from 12 to 5:30 pm on Wednesday and Thursday at TOAD's Place.

To sign up, please go to Log in using your netID and password, then click the "Sign up" link in the lower right hand corner. Enter your personal info (try the automatic fill), select any time that has slots left, and click "submit." Please contact your blood drive coordinators (see below) if you have questions. Once you successfully sign up, you will automatically receive a confirmation with your appointment time, which you are free to change if necessary. Also, we will send you a reminder one day before your appointment.
