The American Red Cross reminds people that blood donation is essential for community health and urges those who are feeling healthy to give. Only 3 out of 100 Americans donate blood, yet every two seconds someone needs it. Fewer people are donating blood to help patients. You can change that by making an appointment to donate blood.
To meet the constant demand for lifesaving blood, the Red Cross must collect about 13,000 blood donations and more than 2,500 platelet donations every day. Each blood donation saves up to 3 lives.
Starting today through April 30th we are partnering with Red Cross to encourage Salesforce Ohana — our employees, partners, customers and members of the communities we call home to donate blood and save lives!
