All aboard, platelet and source plasma donors! The lifesaving journey continues through the Passport Program 2017. Book a seat for platelet or source plasma donation from January through December 31, 2017, and be the ‘connecting flight’ between a patient and hope.
Platelets, which help stop bleeding, only have a 5-day ‘layover’ – so in order to meet this critical patient need, we need regular ‘travelers’ to join us.
How it works: Give up to 24 times during 2017 and receive up to 18,000 MyBloodSource Rewards. There are special bonus milestones along the way and at gold, silver and platinum level ‘frequent flyer’ designations, exclusive MyBloodSource items are unlocked for you!
Source Plasma Donors
Source Plasma is used for lifesaving plasma-based medicines and therapies for patients with neurological disorders, immune disorders, bleeding disorders and more. There is a global shortage, so hop aboard this lifesaving international flight!
How it works: Give up to 24 times and receive up to 14,000 MyBloodSource Rewards. There are special bonus milestones along the way to thank you for giving the gift of hope around the globe!
With both programs, you can redeem your Rewards for any of the great ‘souvenirs’ in the MyBloodSource Store.

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes – you will earn a stamp based on which donation type you give each time. For instance, you may give platelets during one visit and earn a stamp on your Platelet Passport. Perhaps next time you give source plasma and will receive a stamp on your Source Plasma Passport. These programs are separate and cannot be combined. Donation type is contingent upon your ability to give and patient need.
Because platelets only last 5 days, Saturday and Sunday donations provide a greater window of opportunity for your platelet donations to reach their lifesaving destinations for early week surgeries and other needs. .
Yes! We never ‘ground any flights’ – you will receive a new Passport with even more stamps to collect this year!
No matter your ability to give, your ‘travel plans’ to donate are appreciated. Please note that many factors may affect your ability to donate. For this reason, not every donor may be able to achieve all Reward levels and some donors may participate in both programs based on donor ability and patient need. BloodSource reserves the right to modify or discontinue this program.
