Moonlight Blood Drive
Fans of the CBS vampire detective television series Moonlight have organized a national blood drive to show their support and to celebrate the return of new episodes beginning Friday April 25th.
The freshman series has amassed a huge fan base and a cult-like following, as evidenced by winning the “Favorite New TV Drama” on The Peoples Choice Awards, and the show consistently won it’s time period.
The Official Moonlight Blood Drive is being sponsored by www.youchoose.net, which is the place for fans of TV programs to join campaigns for their favorite shows, including “save our show” campaigns.
The National Red Cross has taken an active roll in the blood drive and is acting as a liaison with all of the local Red Cross chapters nationwide. You can select the chapter you would like your donation to go to when you click on the Red Cross donation button on the www.youchoose.net site. We have earmarked some donations to go to the Greater Los Angeles Red Cross chapter to replenish funds that were depleted by the wildfires.
The Official Moonlight Blood Drive will be held at various locations nationwide April 18th through April 27th. To participate, fans should access www.youchoose.net and click on Moonlight Season 2 in the Crusades section on the main page to see the three options on how to pledge to give blood or donate money and to find the locations where blood drives are being held. There still is a need for volunteers to help at sites already set up or to run a new blood drive sites across the nation. There are over 4000 total pledges so far.
