We love celebs that give back. And one of our favorites, actress, activist, mother of two, and social media mavenSoleil Moon Fryehas just teamed up with the American Red Cross and the Nexcare giveProgram to raise awareness about the need for blood donation this summer.
The childhood star who became known for her role as Punky Brewster says that growing up, her mother made giving back a priority in their household. Now as a mother to two girls, Soleil wants to pass that on to her daughters. Becoming the face of the Nexcare give campaign is the perfect way to set an example for them, she says. The celebrity mom is encouraging people across the country as well as her loyal social media fan base to come out this Friday, June 14 in celebration of World Blood Donor Day to roll up a sleeve and give.
With more than 44,000 blood donations needed each and every day,giving blood is one of the easiest ways for people to give back to their community and help save lives.
Those who head to local Red Cross blood donation centers this week, or pledge their support online at Nexcaregive.com, can get free limited edition Nexcare Bandages, each featuring the word give, to wear as a badge of honor and show of their support for blood donation to others.
