The CW Network, Alloy Media + Marketing and The American Red Cross Hold Blood Drives in High Schools and Colleges Nationwide Tied to the New Television Drama "The Vampire Diaries"

"The Vampire Diaries" Premieres Thursday September 10 (8:00-9:00pm) on The CW

August 25, 2009 (Burbank, CA) - In conjunction with the launch of the highly anticipated new series "The Vampire Diaries," The CW Network, Alloy Media + Marketing and the American Red Cross are joining forces for blood drives at more than 230 high schools and college campuses across the nation.

The "Starve a Vampire. Donate Blood." initiative, which starts today and runs for five weeks, encourages students to donate blood through the American Red Cross and help save a life. The CW's "The Vampire Diaries" premieres on Thursday, Sept. 10 (8:00-9:00p.m. ET/PT).

With specially branded "The Vampire Diaries" material, the blood drive initiative will be promoted in high schools and on college campuses through Alloy Media + Marketing's nationwide media network, including high school display media and college newspapers. Brand ambassadors will also distribute flyers and other materials encouraging students to register in advance to participate in the blood drives.

During the blood drives, each location will feature themed "The Vampire Diaries" refreshment areas where students can refuel with special snacks. Exclusive "The Vampire Diaries" footage will be featured on TV monitors. Everyone who participates in the blood drives will walk away with special promotional items, including customized t-shirts.

The stars of The CW's new series "The Vampire Diaries" will make a special visit to the blood drive at Georgia Tech on August 26 to encourage students to donate blood.

In addition, The CW and the American Red Cross will produce a public service announcement, promoting the need for blood donations that will feature the cast of "The Vampire Diaries." The PSA will air on Alloy Media + Marketing's proprietary media platforms, including the Teen.com TV (www.teen.com) video network and the school-based news program, Channel One News.

"In teaming up with the American Red Cross and Alloy, we've created a national campaign for our new show �The Vampire Diaries' that is creative, imaginative and at the same time, has the ability to save lives," said Rick Haskins, EVP, Marketing and Brand Strategy, The CW. "Through these blood drives, we'll be able to connect with students across the country promoting both a wonderful new show and an important cause."

"The American Red Cross is excited to partner with The CW and Alloy Media + Marketing to promote the network's new show, The Vampire Diaries," said Stephanie Millian, spokesperson for the American Red Cross. "This is a great opportunity to engage the younger members of our communities in blood donation activities at participating high school and college campuses across the country."

"This is an exciting initiative that raises awareness for an important issue with a unique and entertaining message that will resonate with young people," commented Matthew Diamond, Chairman and CEO, Alloy Media + Marketing. "We are thrilled to bring The CW and the American Red Cross into Alloy's network of high schools and college campuses as the school year begins, and look forward to the positive impact this program will have on a large audience of students."
