LEXINGTON, Ky. – It’s prime time to donate blood. Donors looking to take advantage of Amazon Prime Days (July 11-12) can sweeten the pot even more by getting a $20 Amazon gift card when they donate at any Kentucky Blood Center donor center on Wednesday, July 12.

The Amazon gift card giveaway is the latest “Donor Appreciation Day” taking place this summer to counter historically poor turnout weeks during a period of traditionally high need.

Donors can schedule an appointment at a KBC donor center by visiting, clicking on a donor center link below or calling 800.775.2522. All donor centers are open Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Appointments are preferred but walk-ins are welcome.

KBC features eight donor centers in six cities (Lexington, Louisville, Corbin, Frankfort, Pikeville and Somerset). Blood collected at KBC serves patients at more than 70 hospitals in Kentucky who need lifesaving products for everything from surgeries to diseases like cancer, traumas, organ transplants, premature births and so much more.

Donors must be at least 17 years old (16 with parental consent), weigh at least 110 pounds, be in general good health, show a photo I.D. and meet additional requirements. Sixteen-year-old donors must have a signed parental permission slip, which can be found at
