TUCSON, Ariz. -- The American Red Cross is giving some potential blood donors a little motivation to give this holiday season.

Those who make an appointment to give blood or platelets will get a $5 Amazon.com gift card by email, courtesy of Suburban Propane. Appointments need to be made between November 18th and December 18th. Donors can also visit their nearest blood center.

According to the Red Cross, the holidays are a time where donors delay giving. Right now, there is a critical need for type O blood donors.
