After I lost my mom to cancer at a young age, I committed to donating blood to help others battling the disease. Over the years, I’ve donated more than seven gallons of blood and platelets, saving many lives. And now, it’s more important than ever to donate blood due to thousands of blood drives that have been cancelled because of COVID-19. The good news is that it’s never been safer to donate blood…and the Red Cross will check you for COVID-19 antibodies. There are donor centers in almost every major city. Click on the Pledge button and someone will help you find a donation center near you!
