The community blood supply is really low in Kentucky, so Kentucky Blood Center is giving donors a chance to rebuild that supply while also proving they bleed blue during the 10th annual Big Blue Slam this week.

Big Blue Slam, which is January 22nd through the 26th, puts Kentucky fans against Florida fans to see who can donate the most blood. All donors will receive a special long-sleeve T-Shirt.

Kentucky Blood Center and Life South Community Blood Center in Florida enjoy this friendly competition every January to see whose donors can give the most blood. Big Blue Slam is a fun way to prove who has the most generous fans while also helping to pump the community blood supply at a when its flu season.
