Blood Institute partners with National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum

Blood donors are used to getting a t-shirt when they donate, but this Spring, they’ll also be receiving a free ticket to the nation’s premier institution of Western history, art and culture.
The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum has partnered with Oklahoma Blood Institute to provide each donor one free adult admission to the museum. The promotion begins March 15 and runs through the end of April, although tickets may be used for the remainder of 2021.
“We’re so excited to once again partner with the Oklahoma Blood Institute and the important work they do,” said Natalie Shirley, National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum president & CEO. “OBI provides such vital services in Oklahoma, and we’re happy to not only welcome their donors to our museum but also give back to the community we serve.”
Most people aged 16 and older can donate blood, if they’re in good health. The donation process takes just an hour, and each blood donation can save up to three lives. “We take our role as the community blood provider very seriously,” said Dr. John Armitage, president and CEO of Oklahoma Blood Institute. Appointments to donate can be made on-line at or by calling 877-340-8777. Donors who have received the most common vaccines (Moderna, Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson) may donate blood without a waiting period, assuming they are feeling well.
