It's part of the Red Cross's "Saving Lives Never Looked So Good" campaign.

      While organizers suggest using the card for shopping or spa services, a Visa gift card can be used anywhere Visa credit cards are accepted including gas stations, grocery stores and financial institutions.Refreshments will be provided by Dunkin Donuts. Everyone who comes out to donate will also get a free ticket to the North Charleston Fire Museum.It's not just the goodies that donors walk away with, but the great feeling that comes with helping a great cause. Just one pint of blood can save up to three lives."Blood products have a shelf life," said Dye. "So we always need people to come out and give blood year-round."
