Attention Type O Blood Donors!

With less than a three-day supply of most blood types, and a critical shortage of type O, the American Red Cross is in urgent need of all blood donations, especially type O. Without more donations, hospitals may not have enough blood to support patients in need.

When trauma strikes unexpectedly, doctors reach for type O blood because 80 percent of the population can receive O positive, regardless of their blood type. With that kind of power, our current critical shortage means patient care could be impacted.

Type O Donors who give May 1-June 10 will receive a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card* by email.
