The American Red Cross is getting ready for the "Red Cross Cat-Griz Blood Battle". The are going to see who can roll up their sleeves and donate the most blood. Isn't that a fantastic name for promotion? It sounds so much like Halloween. The school that donates the most blood in the month of November will not only help to save lives, but they will also bring home the bragging rights. Visit and enter sponsor code GRIZCATCHALLENGE to make an appointment. You can also see the list of all the blood drives that will be coming up in your area.

I have mentioned this before, but I give blood when I can to the Red Cross. For every pint of blood that you donate you can help save up to 3 lives. The Red Cross also let's you know where your blood donation is used. I always like the fact that they will let me know where I helped out. So as the "Griz Cat" or "Cat Griz" rivalry heats up, lets help out as many good causes as we can here in Montana while rooting for the "home" team. Yes it is Missoula vs. Bozeman, but everyone in Montana wins with this rivalry!
