(Portland, OR) -- The American Red Cross has declared an unprecedented national blood crisis. Blood donations are down 10-percent and blood drives are down 62-percent. Hospitals are rationing blood for patients who need it the most. The Red Cross is urging donors to make appointments to give blood. They're offering several prizes including a trip to the Super Bowl, a home theater package, and a 500-dollar e-gift card. Appointments can be made at redcrossblood dot org.
