Massive Blood Drive PSA (Day 7): “Type O Negative Man” by Maude Michaud

Artist Statement

Every year, I look forward to participating in the Soska Sisters' Massive Blood Drive PSA. I've been contributing for a few years now and it's always a project that is fun to do, challenges me to be wildly creative AND also feels good to contribute to because I know it is for a great cause. Donating blood is extremely important and it is something more people need to do. I feel that creating these cool shorts gives the idea of donating blood a much needed facelift while also helping reach a different audience that might not respond to more "traditional" campaigns. I'm happy to do my part in raising awareness for blood donations by creating something fun and unique that I know will have a positive impact.

Make An Appointment to Donate Blood Today!

You can’t think horror without thinking blood! Every February, Women in Horror Month (WiHM) collaborates with Twisted Twins Productions, encouraging our supporters to donate blood.*

This annual call-to-action is a reminder that blood donation is a life-saving act in which you can claim hero status without taking out a horde of rotting zombies or blowing up the mothership. In fact, all it really requires to potentially save someone's life is making an appointment with the American Red CrossCanadian Blood Services, or at your local hospital.
