Why you should donate:

  • More than 4.5 million patients need blood transfusions each year in the U.S. and Canada.
  • One pint of blood can save up to three lives.
  • There is no substitute for human blood.
  • Someone needs blood every two seconds.
  • One unit of blood can be separated into several components: red blood cells, plasma, platelets and cryoprecipitate.
