National Blood Donation Day and Week in its planning stages now

September 4th – 10th is National Blood Donation Week.  September 8th this year will be National Blood Donation Day.

In efforts to help replenish this country’s blood bank supply, we created this campaign to help United Blood Services, American Red Cross and blood banks throughout the country meet their local needs.

Last year, Governors from over 33 states made individual state Blood Donation Days and some such as Arizona made Blood Donation Week and Alaska created a Blood Donation Month!

This awareness provides opportunities for people and their coworkers and neighbors to help donate something that’s free and lifesaving!!!

Those willing to donate blood or those wishing to host a blood drive are urged to contact us here under Comments or at

One pint of blood can save up to 3 lives! Imagine what the whole country could do!
