• January is National Blood Donor Month, the perfect time to resolve to be a regular blood donor and help save lives.
• Extreme winter weather in some parts of the country and seasonal illnesses often make it difficult for the American Red Cross to maintain a sufficient blood supply at this time of year. Healthy individuals are urged to give now and be the lifeline patients need.
• The Red Cross must collect nearly 13,000 blood donations every day for patients in need
Sign up here today to make sure there is blood on the shelves for patients like Lily.
Eligible donors with types O, B negative or A negative blood are especially needed (and encouraged to make a Power Red donation). Power Red donors give a concentrated dose of red blood cells during a single donation, allowing them to maximize their impact. To find out more click here.
Have you traveled outside the US or Europe in the past 12 months? You may not be eligible to donate. To check this and other eligibility questions call the Red Cross Donor and Client Support Center at 1-866-236-3276.
