Blood Is Life
When it comes to treating people for diseases and injury, there are few things that are more important than having enough of a blood supply. Blood donations can literally mean the difference between life and death for thousands and thousands of people each and every year. It’s that important.
Blood donation centers across the country are part of a global effort to raise awareness about the importance of giving blood. Your blood matters – especially during the summer when donation rates drop by as much as 20% in the U.S. making the need even more critical.
Without our As, Bs, ABs and Os – without you – it’s harder to help sick people, stock hospitals, treat diseases or be there in a crisis. I know my blood type is O negative, the universal donor, so I try my best to donate as often as possible.
How You Can Help
Giving is safe and simple. It takes less than an hour to donate blood and your one pint of blood can save up to three lives.
