March is Red Cross Month

March is Red Cross month!

You can go here, and find a blood drive in your area.

Every 2 seconds someone in the United States needs a unit of blood. Only 5% of the eligible people donate blood, there is no substitute!!

Blood is needed for emergencies and for people who have cancer, blood disorders, sickle cell, anemia and other illnesses. Some people need regular blood transfusions to live.

Imagine if giving blood was part of everyone's life. Something you did on a regular basis, like eating at your favorite restaurant. What kind of difference would that make? For nearly 5 million people who receive blood transfusions every year, your donation can make the difference between life and death.

The need is constant. Give the gift of life.

  1. I give blood regularly and have tried and tried to convince my boyfriend to give. He has such a blood hangup. Wuss.

  2. I'm not allowed to give blood, but I put some aside, before I went into the hospital, a few years ago!
