As World Blood Donor Day approaches on June 14, the American
Red Cross stresses that blood and platelet donors are critically needed right now to combat a drastic
shortfall in donations over the last several weeks. Donors of all blood types are needed, especially
those with type O blood and donors giving platelets.
Record-breaking summer travel and severe weather conditions are expected to persist all season long,
which may prevent donors from being able to give. When fewer people donate, less blood is available for
hospital patients. Make a blood or platelet donation a priority this summer. Book a time to give now
by visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS or by using the Red Cross Blood Donor
App.
World Blood Donor Day
June 14 is World Blood Donor Day, a day meant to raise awareness of the need for a safe, diverse and
stable blood supply, and to recognize volunteer blood donors. This is the perfect time to give, especially
for those who haven’t given in a while, or who have never given before.
Those who come to give June 10-30, 2024, will get a $15 e-gift card to a merchant of choice. See
RedCrossBlood.org/DoGood for details.
