RE: We need your help now! The warm weather is here and the supply of Type O negative and Type B negative blood continues to be at critical levels and has not recovered. The summer months typically mean a decline in blood donations as donors become busy with seasonal activities and overlook donating blood. We need your help now to replenish the current supply and help prevent a further drop. While all blood types are needed during the critical summer months, type O negative blood is crucial because it can be transfused to patients with any blood type, especially in emergency situations. Out of an estimated 38% of the population that is eligible to give blood, only about 8% actually donates. Each day, more than 38,000 blood donations are needed in the U.S. Your blood donation can help make the difference between an adequate blood supply and a summer shortage. When you give blood, you save lives. Blood is used for the treatment of cancer patients, people with blood disorders, premature babies, transplant recipients, trauma victims and so much more. The blood supply for type O negative and type B negative are are at critically low levels! All eligible donors are urged to make an appointment to donate blood now! Schedule your appointment to give blood through the American Red Cross today and help save lives. Call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org
