America's Blood Centers Thanks Donors During Celebration of National Blood Donor Month
Date:12/28/2007

those anonymous angels," says Larsen, a Boulder, CO, marketing executive and blood donor advocate.

Holidays, busy travel schedules, inclement weather and illness all combine to make the winter months a time when blood is often in short supply. Because of this, America's Blood Centers would like to challenge Americans to make a New Year's resolution in 2008 that is easy to stick to: donate blood.

And there is no better time to start than during National Blood Donor Month which begins January 1. ABC is asking all eligible blood donors to schedule an appointment to donate blood this month and throughout 2008. As blood usage increases, it is becoming more critical that people become regular blood donors; one who gives two to three times a year.

"If it weren't for the generosity of millions of American blood donors, people with disorders such as Thalassemia and Sickle Cell would not live a productive life," states Donald Doddridge, President of America's Blood Centers. "Many more are alive today because there was blood on the shelf when they needed it after an accident or emergency surgical procedure. ABC would like to thank those who have continued to support the cause, and ask those who have not previously donated, to start a new habit in 2008: giving the gift of life by becoming a regular blood donor."

To be eligible to donate blood you must be 17 years of age (16 in some states), at least 110 pounds and in general good health. For more information about becoming a blood donor or to find a community blood center near you, please visit http://www.AmericasBlood.org or call 1-888-USBLOOD.
