Why donate blood, you may ask?

According to the American Red Cross, You don’t need a special reason to give blood. You just need your own reason.

  • Some of us give blood because we were asked by a friend
  • Some know that a family member or a friend might need blood some day
  • Some believe it is the right thing we do

Whether you have a reason or not, the need for blood is always there. Your contribution is important for a healthy and reliable blood supply. And you’ll feel good knowing you’ve helped to change a life.

Not only does donating blood benefit those in need, it can also have healthy benefits to you. Benefits include:

  • Giving blood may help your blood flow better
  • During your donation, you’ll get a mini check-up checking your blood pressure and hemoglobin levels
  • Giving blood helps your iron levels stay balanced
  • Doing good for others can even help you live longer. From a psychological perspective the benefits of knowing you’re giving back can have long term effects.

Contact your local Red Cross to find out where you can give blood.
