Donate Blood to Help Save Lives!
* Every two seconds, someone needs a blood transfusion.
* 38% of the U.S population is eligible to donate blood, but only 10% of Americans do so.
* Every unit of blood can save up to three lives.
The American Red Cross is responding to the tragic earthquake in Haiti by providing first aid, food and water, emotional support and emergency relief supplies. The American Red Cross is providing blood and blood products this week at the request of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and will coordinate future requests for blood among its blood collector partners.
