American Red Cross. The need is constant. The gratification is instant. Give Blood.

Blood and platelet donors are everyday heroes who help save lives. Now is a great time to make a blood donation and encourage others to join the ranks.

Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood, with a total of 44,000 blood donations needed every day. You don’t need a special reason to give blood. You just need your own reason. The need is constant and your contribution is important for a healthy and reliable blood supply.
