About GIVE

And District Clay’s Call to Action



GIVE is a tribute to Russell’s parents who gave blood regularly and stressed the need for everyone to do so. GIVE is made up of hundreds of small porcelain figurines that are divided by blood type (A, AB, B or O) and color. In our perfect world, everyone gets together and GIVES.

Russell would like each person who participates in the Blood Drive to get a free figurine with their blood type.

We need at least 38 people to register their interest to make the blood drive a reality.


If you can participate from 1-6 pm on

Monday, Nov. 11 or Wed, Nov. 27th, please click here.

Why Give Blood?
You are truly giving the gift of life. Every day, blood donors help patients of all ages: accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those battling cancer. In fact, every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. Go here for a few of their stories.

How Long Does Giving Blood Take?
It takes only one hour to give the gift of life. The actual draw takes only 8-10 minutes. And each unit of blood can be used can be separated into four individual components that could help save multiple lives. Go here for more information on the process of donating blood.

If you purchase a blood figurine, District Clay will donate 25% ($10 each) to the

American Red Cross.
