Today is World Blood Donor Day: We Encourage Blood Donations During American Red Cross Missing Types Campaign
During the month of June we will join the Red Cross and other companies, organizations and celebrities to remove the letters A, B and O – the main blood groups – from its logo and public-facing messaging to illustrate the critical role blood donations play in patient care. Many do not realize how important these letters can be until they are missing from hospital shelves.
New donors, regular donors, as well as those who haven’t given blood in a while can all do their important part to help fill in the missing types and ensure blood is available for patients in need. To make an appointment to donate, please visit RedCrossBlood.org/MissingTypes, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). #SuburbanCares #MissingTypes
