If you've got a few minutes to spare today, there's a blood drive going on in the Lansing area. The YMCA of Lansing is partnering with the American Red Cross to host a Blood Donation Drive today from 10 am until 3:45 pm. The blood drive will be taking place at the Westside YMCA, located at 3700 Old Lansing Road in Lansing. You can schedule an appointment by going to redcrossblood.org or you can also make an appointment by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Click here to find out more about today's blood drive.

If you can't give blood today, you can always find a blood drive that's happening in the near future by going to the American Red Cross website and entering your zip code. Also, they're always looking for blood donations at the Lansing Blood Donation Center located at 1729 East Saginaw Street in Lansing.

Besides the great feeling of knowing that you're helping others, right now there's an extra incentive to donate blood. According to the American Red Cross website, during the month of June, if you donate blood, platelets or AB Elite plasma, they'll send you a $5 Amazon.com gift card. You can find out more about that by clicking here.
