Fulfill Your New Year’s Resolution to Give Blood

Posted Friday, December 2, 2011 --- 8:15 a.m.

Press Release from the American Red Cross:

As 2011 draws to a close, many may reflect on the past year and the New Year’s resolutions made nearly a year ago. If ‘help others’ was included on your list of resolutions, there is still time to help patients in need by donating blood through the American Red Cross.

With your donation this month, the gift of a blood or platelet donation can make an even greater difference. In honor of all December blood and platelet donors, a financial contribution will be made to the American Red Cross annual holiday giving program.

As the new year approaches, take the time to give blood this month and remember to include ‘donate blood’ on your list of resolutions for 2012. Make an appointment today to make a difference in the lives of others.

How to Donate Blood
Simply call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license, or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

About the American Red Cross
Governed by volunteers and supported by giving individuals and communities, the American Red Cross is the single largest supplier of blood products to hospitals throughout the United States. While local hospital needs are always met first, the Red Cross also helps ensure no patient goes without blood no matter where or when they need it. In addition to providing nearly half of the nation’s blood supply, the Red Cross provides relief to victims of disaster, trains millions in lifesaving skills, serves as a communication link between U.S. military members and their families, and assists victims of international disasters or conflicts.
