Every two seconds someone in the United States needs blood. But only 5% of the eligible donors in the U.S. give blood in any given year. Despite all medical advances, healthy volunteer blood donors are the only source of blood.

Blood is needed for emergencies and for people who have cancer, blood disorders, sickle cell, anemia and other illnesses. Some people need regular blood transfusions to live.

Many people say they have never given blood because they haven't been asked. Please, consider yourself asked. The need is real. The need is now.

To make an appointment to donate blood, please visit www.givelife.org or call 1-800-GIVE LIFE (1-800-448-3543).
