Welcome, Blood Donor!
Welcome, Blood Donor!
You’re a real hero in our book to give your time to donating something that can’t be manufactured or printed – your blood. The Red Cross must collect up to 14,000 donations per day to meet patient needs. One donation may help save up to three lives! And 56 days after one donation, you’re eligible to give another. We promise to work hard to make giving blood as convenient as possible for you.

After a serious jet-ski accident on Lake Ozark, Kelly was airlifted to the hospital. She underwent three surgeries in 48 hours. "The accident humbled me," Kelly says. "It put me in a position where I personally knew how it felt to receive blood and have someone save your life just by donating their time and their blood." Kelly is now an active blood donor. Schedule another donation and join her in giving more life.
