Due to a pretty bad flu season and winter weather, the Red Cross is approaching a shortage.

Type 'O' is a universal blood type. It can be used for any patient. As I learned from donating blood, each donation can save up to three lives.

Please consider making a life-saving donation to the American Red Cross.

There are 4 ways to make a blood donation appointment:

  • Use the Red Cross Blood Donor App
  • Visiting RedCrossBlood.org
  • Call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767)
  • Enable the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo enabled device.
