The 'Fire up your Summer!' This July the Community Blood Bank is giving away five Amazon Kindle Fires plus $100 Amazon Gift Card to five lucky people just for giving blood. This is the hottest electronic item this summer; it's an e-reader and computer tablet with color touch screen display.
The blood bank has avoided a blood shortage so far this summer but supplies are falling. The CBB hopes these Kindles will light a fire and get some extra donors in this month, a very tough month to recruit donors.
