1. Giving blood is an easy resolution to keep and it helps save lives! Make your first donation appointment of 2023 with the American Red Cross by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
  2. January is often a challenging time to maintain a sufficient blood supply. Holiday get-togethers, school breaks, winter weather and illnesses often lead to lower donor turnout, but the need for blood, platelets and plasma doesn’t pause.
  3. You are the best defense against a blood shortage! In thanks for helping save lives, those who come to give blood, platelets or plasma with the Red Cross in January will get a chance at a trip to Super Bowl LVII in Arizona. (Terms apply; visit RedCrossBlood.org/SuperBowl for more information.)
