This is a pledge to encourage you to become a blood donor.
Reasons for donating blood:
- you can save up to 3 lives with just one donation!
- someone needs blood every 3 seconds. an average of 40,000 units are needed every day. there is no substitute for human blood.
- 60% of the population will need blood at some time in their lives, yet less than 5% of the population donates.
- disasters like car accidents, fires, and other trauma cases happen every day and these patients need blood, and rarely do they need only one pint. a bleeding trauma victim can run through 100 units of blood in no time.
- you get an instant gratification for doing good and making a difference.
- you get a free physical and iron level check and it's the fastest way to lose a pound!
