THE AMERICAN RED CROSS AND ENGAGE.COM INTRODUCE "WHAT'S YOUR TYPE?" BLOOD DRIVE AND RECEPTION EVENT FOR SINGLES AND THEIR FRIENDS
SAN FRANCISCO— December 18-20, 2007— Bay Area singles won’t be single minded this holiday season as they join Engage.com, the Internet’s first social dating community, and the American Red Cross to mix, mingle, donate blood and meet other altruistic singles at three local blood drives scheduled for the week before Christmas.
While singles are donating blood, Engage.com “connectors” and friends will play matchmaker for them by learning about their romantic type and introducing them to compatible Engage members found on the site. All blood donors will be invited to an EXCLUSIVE thank you RECEPTION on Thursday night, December 20, at the historic Hotel Rex from 7-9 pm.
“What’s Your Type?” Blood Drive Schedule
December 18: 4 – 8 pm at the San Jose Blood Center. 2731 North First Street, San Jose.
December 19: 4 – 8 pm at the Oakland Blood Center. 6230 Claremont Avenue, Oakland.
December 20: 1 – 6:30 pm at Hotel Rex. 562 Sutter Street, San Francisco
The Red Cross hopes for a great turnout at this blood drive, this is the time when they struggle most to maintain a strong supply of all blood types between Thanksgiving and the New Year, as fewer people make time to donate blood during the busy holidays”
"Engage "Real-World" Events have consistently pushed the envelope on designing cutting-edge social gatherings that are outside of the norm," said Julian Brass, Engage's ThirdWheel and Marketing and Partnership Specialist.
Participants in the three-day blood drive can save up to three lives with their one donation, while also increasing their chances of making a connection with others.
In an Engage.com survey of more than 800 single adults, 81% said they are more attracted to singles who are “givers” (generous, helpful and altruistic in nature) than to other singles. “If you’re single, giving blood not only makes the world a little better, but also makes you sexier and more eligible in the eyes of potential romantic partners,” said Trish McDermott, Vice President of Love at Engage.com.
Donors can schedule an appointment for the three-day blood drive at www.beadonor.com, using the sponsor code: ENGAGE.
