What better movie to help promote National Blood Donor Month than the original Roger Corman 1960 classic, Little Shop of Horrors!
Okay Audrey Jr. craving blood might not be the best analogy. But it's a fun one as is the movie! Dare I say better than the musical...
Join Jonathan Haze as Seymour Krelboined, Jackie Joseph as Audrey Fulquard, Mel Welles as Gravis Mushnick and a very young Jack Nicholson as Wilbur Force for all of Feed Me! fun!

On a serious note, from the Red Cross website:
The American Red Cross is facing an emergency blood shortage as it experiences the lowest number of people giving blood in the last 20 years. Blood and platelet donations are needed now to help alleviate the shortage and ensure lifesaving medical procedures proceed without delay.
“One of the most distressing situations for a doctor is to have a hospital full of patients and an empty refrigerator without any blood products,” said Dr. Pampee Young, chief medical officer of the Red Cross, the nation’s largest blood supplier. “A person needs lifesaving blood every two seconds in our country — and its availability can be the difference between life and death, however, blood is only available thanks to the generosity of those who roll up a sleeve to donate.”
Don’t wait — make an appointment today to give blood or platelets to help ensure people receive the care they need. Book now by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
