Help Prevent a Shortage of Life-Saving Blood Supplies


Donate a portion of your purchase to the American Red Cross and Direct Textbook will match it

The American Red Cross is seeking donations to maintain blood, platelet and plasma reserves during the COVID-19 crisis. Though immediate demands have been met, fear about the coronavirus has limited donor participation and the Red Cross needs help to avoid a shortage of critical blood supplies.

Direct Textbook cash back members can help by donating a portion of their earnings to the American Red Cross - and we'll match it to double your impact. It's a powerful way to help your community avoid another health crisis. (Not a Direct Textbook cash back member? Sign up here)

Your generous donation will help the American Red Cross sustain its life-saving efforts: in addition to maintaining 40% of the nation's blood supply, the nonprofit is providing food, disaster relief and emergency support during the pandemic.


Donating is easy: simply use DirectTextbook.com to find the lowest prices for the books you need. Complete your purchase from one of the stores offering cash back. Your cash back balance will be available to donate within 2-3 days. (See your recently viewed books)
