Give Blood, Get Citi Field Tickets

I just got a postcard inviting me to donate blood and receive of a pair of Mets tickets in the process. I did this last year, and it went very smoothly.

This year it seems even more relevant, considering the injuries and anemic playing affecting the Mets!

The details:
Donation on Thursday, July 23, 2009
10:00am through 5:00pm
Citi Field First Base VIP Entrance
Flushing, NY
People can donate as along as they meet the standard requirements. For instance, you must be between 16 and 76 (and have written consent if you're 16 and a doctor's note if you're 75 or older). Your weight must be at least 110 lbs. You should bring your ID to the event. You should eat and drink before donating, and (sorry, hipsters!) you must not have tattoos or piercings less than a year old.

You can call 1-800-688-0900 for eligibility requirements.
