Danville, VA - Donating blood may seem a bit daunting to some people especially if you get squeamish around needles.
But the American Red Cross wants to give you a reason to donate.
They've partnered with the Danville Braves to give you a free ticket to any home game if you donate blood Thursday.
The Braves say an intern came up with the idea, and they decided to go with it.
"It just kind of came about that they were interested in doing a blood drive out here and we were able to do a little publicity for that," said Brandon Bennett, operations manager Danville Braves.
The blood drive goes until 6 p.m. at Dan Daniel Park.
