In searching through your cabinets, have you come across that super, spectacular bagel-maker that you've only used once?  Now it's just sitting there taking up valuable space on your shelf.  So get rid of it already!  Oh, and what about mint that you planted and it's now outgrowing its' pot?  Share it with someone else who also has a green thumb.

Red Cross issues emergency call for blood and platelet donors

Blood donations down about 10 percent in June

OMAHA, Neb. (July 9, 2013) – The American Red Cross issued an emergency request for platelet and

blood donors of all blood types to roll up a sleeve and give because many fewer donations than expected

were received in June and the first week of July.

“We are counting on generous volunteer blood and platelet donors to step up and give now,” said Tricia

Quinn, CEO for the Red Cross Midwest Blood Services Region. “Every two seconds, someone in the U.S.

needs blood. Each day donations come up short, less blood is available for these patients in need.”

Nationwide, donations through the Red Cross were down approximately 10 percent in June, resulting in

about 50,000 fewer donations than expected. The shortfall is similar to what the Red Cross experienced

in June 2012.

June can be among the most challenging months of the year for blood and platelet donations as regular

donors delay giving while they adjust to summer schedules. High school and college blood drives

account for as much as 20 percent of Red Cross donations during the school year. Donations from those

who usually give at these drives drop by more than 80 percent when school is out for the summer.  In

addition, a mid-week Independence Day holiday reduced the number of blood drives scheduled in

early July. Many sponsors, especially businesses, were unable to host drives because employees took

extended vacations.

The Red Cross urgently needs donations to ensure an adequate blood supply is available for patients

all summer long.  Each day, the Midwest Blood Services Region must collect approximately 500 blood

donations to meet patient needs. Eligible donors with types O negative, B negative and A negative blood

are especially encouraged to give. Type O negative is the universal blood type and can be transfused to

anyone who needs blood. Types A negative and B negative can be transfused to Rh positive or negative


There is also an urgent need for platelet donations. Platelets – a key clotting component of blood often

needed by cancer patients - must be transfused within five days of donation, so it’s important to have a

steady supply of platelets on hand.

How to Donate Blood

Simply call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit to make an appointment or

for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor

card or driver’s license, or two other forms of identification are required at check-in.  Individuals who

are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in

generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years

of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

About the American Red Cross

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters;

supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international

humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit

organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its

mission. For more information, please visit or visit us on Twitter at @RedCross.


The need is constant. The gratification is instant. Give blood.™
