Critically Low Levels

Colorado, Okalahoma, and many other states hit recently by bad winter weather are experiencing critically low levels of blood supplies.
Columbus, Georgia is reporting less than ONE day supply at it's American Red Cross location and in January they are enticing donors with 2 FREE tickets on Delta Airlines.
Do blood banks/centers really need to entice people with giveaways or prizes in order to save lives? I would like to think not, however, it's apparent that with such critically low levels across the United States, we need donors and we need them now.
I should also note that this isn't just restricted to the US at this time, South Africa is reporting unusally low levels along with several other Europeon countries.
