Bakersfield, Ca. (KGET)– There has been so much uncertainty, stress, sickness and even death amid the pandemic. It can feel like a mounting weight on one’s shoulder- feeling like there’s no good out there.
Well, Houchin Community Blood Bank is trying to change that, and encouraging you to ‘Pay It Forward’ and spread some positivity. Throughout the month of April, Houchin is challenging you to do something kind for someone, whether it’s big or small. And they’re hoping you’ll come out to donate as well. To add to the promotion, they reached out to several influencers to town to encourage their followers to donate. If you follow @glamm.by.coco, @Shanehubbardfit, @Mackenziephotography or @averysappetite, you’ll be seeing posts throughout the month with a special code you’ll give when you donate.
And if saving up to three lives isn’t enough of an incentive, there’s more. Someone will win a $300 Airbnb gift card along with a $250 visa gift card. To be entered to win, people have to follow three steps, you have to follow HCBB on social media, whether that’s Facebook or Instagram, then have to tag three friends, then they have to add that post on their social media or their story. The promotion runs all month long.
