Each and every day blood is in need. In one day more than 41,000 blood donations are needed each day. Only 10% of all eligible blood donors actually donate. Our society needs and relies on each other.
Since 1970, National Blood Donor Month has been observed in January, when seasonal illnesses and bad weather make it especially hard to collect enough blood for patient needs. Find out if you are eligible to donate blood.
Unable to Give Blood? You can help people facing emergencies by making a financial donation to support the Red Cross’s greatest needs. Your gift enables the Red Cross to ensure an ongoing blood supply, provide humanitarian support to families in need and prepare communities by teaching lifesaving skills.
