Adventure Starts Here with Texas Blood Institute

Texas Blood Institute is offering blood donors a chance to choose their own adventure this summer.

All successful donors will receive an “Adventure Starts Here” t-shirt** and their choice of the following tickets:
  • One free ticket to the Science Museum of Oklahoma
  • One free ticket to Frontier City Theme Park
  • One free ticket to the Oklahoma City Zoo
  • Two free tickets to Safari Joe’s H2O Water Park
As summer begins, Texas Blood Institute has less than half of the blood supply needed, threatening a critical blood shortage for local patients, and creating an immediate need for blood donors. Anyone at least 16 years old* is encouraged to donate. 

“Summer traditionally challenges our ability to collect blood products, as many are vacationing and outside of their normal routines,” said Dr. John Armitage, President and CEO of Texas Blood Institute. “We’re so thankful to our loyal summer partners for helping us reward those who make their summer a lifesaving one by donating blood for those in need.”

Texas Blood Institute supports the inventory for patients in eight major hospitals in the Texoma region. 

Appointments to donate can be made online at txbi.org or by calling 877-340-8777. Blood donation typically takes only about an hour, and one donation saves up to three lives.

Your donation gives someone a chance to start their own adventure this summer!
