The American Red Cross is teaming up with the National Football League in January for National Blood Donor Month.

Individuals donating blood or platelets in January will be automatically entered to win two tickets to next year's Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles.

The organizations are urging individuals, especially those who have recovered from COVID-19, to give blood and to help tackle the national convalescent plasma shortage.

If you donate Jan. 1 to 20, you will also be automatically entered to win the Big Game at Home package; a 65-inch television and a $500 gift card.

You can make an appointment to donate blood by visiting RedCrossBlood.org, using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, or calling 1-800-RED-CROSS.
