Blood donors critically needed in July

Donors can help hospitals stay prepared to weather challenges this summer

COLUMBIA, MO (July 8, 2024) — This July, the American Red Cross continues to stress that
blood donors are critically needed right now to support lifesaving transfusions this summer.
Donors of all blood types are in demand, especially those with type O blood.

Every donation counts in the mission to keep blood products stocked for patients, including
those facing life-threatening situations. More than a quarter of all blood products each year are
used in critical care and emergency room cases, highlighting the importance of generous blood
donors. Be a force for good. Book a time to give blood by visiting,
calling 1-800-RED CROSS or by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App.

The Red Cross has teamed up with Universal Pictures for the theatrical release of TWISTERS
to help avoid a summer blood shortage. All who come to give blood or platelets July 1-31 will
get a Fandango Movie Ticket* by email. Plus, those who come to give by July 14 will also
receive a one-of-a-kind TWISTERS and Red Cross umbrella, while supplies last. BONUS:
Those who come to give blood in July will also automatically be entered for a chance to win a
2025 Ram 1500 Big Horn ® . See for full details.
