Be a star


Blood donors head to the movies for free!

 

Lifesaving superheroes aren’t just on the big screen. They are right here in the Grand Rapids community. This holiday, before people head out to see the newest blockbuster movie, Michigan Blood invites them to Be a Star, by donating blood. Everyone who attempts to donate will receive a free movie pass and free popcorn from Celebration! Cinema.

No matter what the season, blood is always needed by patients in hospitals around the state.  In fact, Michigan Blood needs to collect more than 2200 units each and every week. Around the holidays, when people are traditionally traveling, exchanging gifts, or heading to the movies, the number of people donating blood declines. So this year, Michigan Blood and Celebration! Cinema have joined together to make blood donation part of the holiday tradition.

Dates and Times for the Be a Star event vary around the state. To find the location near you, go to miblood.org.  In the Grand Rapids area:
