Donate blood, platelets, or plasma
Don’t worry — it will only pinch for a split-second. And the good you do will literally last a lifetime. Donating through mobile drives or donation centers is quick and easy.
One pint of blood can save up to three lives. If we come together as a community arm in arm, how many lives could we save? Let’s go all in for more happy stories.
When you give, people live!
"I talk about my life differently now, because, without the bone marrow transplant, I would have lost it."
Chad Hathaway, Donation Recipient
"I'm lucky to be alive. It could have been a whole lot different."
Todd Layfield, Donation Recipient
"I went to the blood bank, and I saw people I didn't even know saying my wife's name, and they were there to donate blood to her."
Pedro Amador, husband of donation recipient
"I don't donate because of the benefits for me, but I donate to give people hope and a fighting chance at life. You never know whose life you'll save!"
