Representative Jim Banks donates blood at the American Red Cross.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The American Red Cross is joining forces with Wonder Woman 1984 in asking Hoosiers to donate blood. Those who do will be entered in a prop replica giveaway.

The coronavirus pandemic has unprecedented supply challenges. As a result, the American Red Cross partnered with Wonder Woman 1984 to give away prop replicas from the new Warner Bros. film that will be released on October 2.

Those who donate July 1 – 31 will automatically be entered to win an authentic Wonder Woman 1984 movie prop replica package.

“In times of crisis, new superheroes often emerge, and new alliances are forged. The Red Cross is thrilled to partner with WONDER WOMAN 1984 to encourage and thank fans and blood donors alike for being superheroes for patients in need by giving blood in July,” said Julie Brady, donor services executive of the American Red Cross Indiana-Ohio Blood Services. “Blood donors have a unique super power—lifesaving blood. Blood cannot be manufactured, and donors are the only source for patients in need.”
