What To Do

Print this page

It's here. The time of year when we walk into the stores, and are reminded that the gift-giving season is bearing down on us with unrelenting speed. And we once again ask ourselves, "What do you get the person that has everything?"

So, I ask you this...why not consider giving the greatest gift of all? The gift of life.

The American Red Cross is storming into Louisville with a number of upcoming blood drives, and needs you to consider being a donor. 

And why is it important to give blood?

Facts About Blood Donation

-Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood.

-More than 38,000 blood donations are needed every day.

-The average adult has 10-12 pints of blood. Roughly 1 pint is given during donation.

-One donation can help save the lives of up to three people!
