- Blood donations tend to dip below the normal level due to busy holiday schedules
- Blood has a shelf life of only 42 days, so new blood donations are in constant need
- It only takes an hour to donate (that includes wait time, cosultation, and donation time)
- 800 donors are needed daily in the Nashville Area. This need is rarely met.
- Blood takes 3 days to be tested and packaged, so waiting until an emergency is too late
- You can donate every 56 days
- You save 3 lives per unit of blood that you donate (red cells, plasma, and platelets are divided to help 3 individuals)
- Blood platelets are used for cancer patients going through chemo
Have questions about donating? Here are some answers to many common questions. And listen to Lightning 100's "Tuned In" interview with Lt. Dan and the American Red Cross!
