4. The Red Cross really needs blood donations, and it's partnering with sports clips to offer an incentive.

Donations have dropped locally by about 10 percent, so supplies are critically low, and there's a concert the need will increase following a rise in COVID-19 cases.

Anyone who donates blood or platelets this month will get a coupon for a free sports clips haircut.

If you give between September 3-7, you'll also get a red cross campfire mug while supplies last.
