Each year during National Blood Donor Month, we commit ourselves to raising awareness of the often decreased blood supply during the winter months. This season tends to be a struggle for many blood centers across the country as they compete with holiday activities, snowy road conditions, and seasonal illnesses.
Did you know that if you start donating today, you'll be able to save 18 lives by the end of the year?
Blood donors can give blood every 56 days. If you start today, you'll be able to donate 5 more times in 2017, saving 3 lives each time. What an incredible impact!
With the winter months making it more difficult for blood centers to keep up with local demand, we ask that you celebrate National Blood Donor Month with us, and schedule a blood donation today.
As always, we are so thankful to the heroics of committed blood donors around the country. Let's start off 2017 with a resolve to donate blood and save lives!
