Busting Blood Myths to Save More Lives
Red Cross Blood and 3 YouTube channels partnered to bust #BloodMyths from the TOP Frequently Asked Questions regarding donor eligibility. By busting these myths, our goal is to increase the awareness that only 3% of eligible donors give blood every year. That means 97% of US residents who are eligible have not yet donated but have the ability to save more than one life with a single donation. Every 2 seconds someone is in need of blood.
