Every minute of every day, someone needs blood. That blood can only come from a volunteer donor, a person like you who makes the choice to donate.
· Did you know that 1 in 7 people entering a hospital needs blood and one pint of your own donated blood can save up to three lives.
· Did you know that Children being treated for cancer, premature infants and children having heart surgery need blood and platelets from donors of all types, especially type O.
· Did you know that 17 percent of non-donors cite “never thought about it” as the main reason for not giving, while 15 percent say they’re too busy.
· Did you know that the #1 reason blood donors say they give is because they “want to help others.”
