For those of you who need more Andre Burakovsky in your life, I have some great news.
During the team’s next blood drive, the Capitals will be giving away affirmatively-nodding Burra Bobbles as a thank you for helping save a life.
But does Ceramic Andre really capture the essence of Human Andre? Let’s take a closer look.
The Burra Bobble nails the former teen model’s fleek brows, but does not capture Andre’s normal dazed and confused playing face. The nose shape is perfect, but the color of Andre Bobbleheadsky looks like it just came back from a trip to Barbados.
More from the Capitals:
The Washington Capitals and Inova Blood Donor Services will host a blood drive on Saturday, July 15, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, Va. Appointments are required.
Blood drive donors will receive a bobblehead of forward Andre Burakovsky as well as a Capitals T-shirt.
More than 250 units of blood and blood products are needed every day, year-round, for patients in area hospitals. One blood donation can save up to three lives, and there is a continual need for all blood types. There is no substitute for human blood. It only comes from volunteer blood donors. It is used to help trauma patients, surgery patients, newborn babies, cancer patients and transplant patients.
Donors can make an appointment now by calling 1-866-BLOODSAVES (1-866-256-6372) or by signing up online on the Inova Blood Donor Services website. All donors are asked to arrive at their scheduled appointment time.
To give blood, donors must be feeling generally well on the day of their donation, be at least 16 years old (with parental consent), weigh at least 110 pounds and not have donated blood in the past eight weeks (56 days) for whole blood or 112 days for double red cells. For more information about eligibility requirements call 1-866-BLOODSAVES or visit inova.org/donateblood.
Aspects of each potential donor’s health history are discussed as part of the donation process before any blood is collected. Each donor receives a brief examination during which temperature, blood pressure and hemoglobin (iron level) are measured.
Inova Blood Donor Services is the major supplier of blood products in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.
