BOISE, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — The Idaho Red Cross is still dealing with a shortage of blood as we head into the holiday season.

Now, as a way to incentivize blood donations, people who donate from Nov.29 to Dec. 16 will be automatically entered for a chance to win a private screening of “The Matrix Resurrections.”

Winners can also bring 50 guests. The Red Cross is blaming the ongoing effects of COVID-19 as well as the summer spike in cases of the Delta Variant for the sharp drop in blood supply.

There were also fewer blood drives in schools and colleges which resulted in a 34% drop in new donors compared to 2020. The Red Cross is reporting a 12% drop in drop in new donors this year in the Idaho and Montana region.

You can make an appointment to donate blood by visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-733-2767. You can also go to the following blood drives in the Magic Valley:
