Count on Me!
LifeStream has a new donor recognition program! It’s called Count on Me! Our new program ensures that every donor, every day at every LifeStream donor center and mobile drive receives a special promotional item. With this new program, we will take down our online store where donors have historically been able to redeem points online for LifeStream merch and we will discontinue the points program since you, our amazing donor, will immediately receive your thank you gift with each donation. No waiting, no banking points, and no danger of points expiring. A win-win for you and the patients we serve! Please note that all points must be redeemed by January 31, 2021.
The fun and special item will run for a two-month period and consists primarily of T-shirts, but other types of items, such as hats, towels, and blankets, will be available at various times during the year. All promo items will be individually bagged and include a special note that describes the promo we will be offering during the next two months to encourage you to return to donate more of your precious gift!
The two-month period will ensure you have an opportunity to receive the promo item when you are eligible to donate blood. Most importantly, you’ll be helping save lives! All promo items will be branded with the Count on Me! logo as a reminder that patients can count on YOU.
Starting in January and February, donors can receive a long-sleeved “Count on Me!” T-shirt and a “Count on Me!” hat in March and April. “Count on Me!” also includes donors’ favorite T-shirt promotions: Memorial Day, 9/11 and Veterans Day.
T-shirts will be offered in the two sizes most popular with our donors: Large and XXL. This is more cost effective for our non-profit organization, and easier for our staff to manage. And as mentioned earlier, other, non-size related items will be available at various times during the year.
Are you a platelet donor?
For our frequent platelet donors, we’ve prepared a special T-shirt “six-pack” and the goal is to collect all six shirts throughout the year! Platelet donors also receive the regular promo item in addition to their special T-shirt.
Platelet six-pack shirt available once every two months. Colors subject to change.
Patients being treated for blood diseases, including cancer, often need frequent platelet transfusions as treatment for the disease can reduce platelet count. For more information about donating platelets, please click here.

COVID-19 Antibody Testing
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all of us, especially patients fighting for their lives. To discover future convalescent plasma donors, LifeStream is testing all successful whole-blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies. Results will be posted on your unique LifeStream account about 2 weeks following your donation. You’ll find out if potentially you could assist currently ill COVID-19 patients. Your blood donation is also tested for cholesterol levels and more than a dozen other infectious diseases.
Note: All platelet donations will receive the COVID-19 antibody test only if 56 or more days have passed since last tested for antibodies by LifeStream.
Your Well-Being Is Our #1 Priority!
We require all donors and staff to wear masks/face coverings (please note that masks/face coverings with one-way valves to filter outside air are not sufficient) and submit to temperature checks and COVID-19 symptom checks before accessing donor waiting areas. LifeStream adheres to social distancing guidelines and has enhanced already strict cleaning and disinfecting protocols. To learn more about the steps we’re taking, click here.
