Red Cross

The American Red Cross is urging blood donors to give blood in the final weeks of summer to help overcome a chronic summer blood shortage.

Gold buoyed by US-North Korea tensions
The Shanghai Composite Index lost 0.2 per cent to 3,275.57 and Hong Kong's Hang Seng was off 0.3 per cent at 27,757.09. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note slipped to 2.20 percent from 2.25 percent late Wednesday.

As a special thank you, those who come out to give blood or platelets with the Red Cross now through August 31 will be emailed a $5 Target eGiftCard. The Red Cross encourages eligible donors to make an appointment now to support hospital patients in critical need by giving lifesaving blood. Donors who contributed earlier in the summer may be eligible again. Donors can also complete pre-reading and health history questions online at Red Cross RapidPass and print out the form on the day of the blood drive. This giveaway is not sponsored by Target. Donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, A negative and B negative. To locate a drive near you log onto http://www.redcrossblood.org/ or by calling 1-800-REDCROSS. "We are committed to strengthening our community and to that end meet community needs through blood donations", said Barbara Timm, Director of Programs.
