Why should you give blood?

  • Last year LifeServe‚Äôs hospital partners used over 230 blood products PER DAY ¬†1 in 7 entering the hospital will need a transfusion.
  • Only 3% – 5% of the population donates blood
  • Many Trauma Surgeons refer to the summertime as ‚ÄúTrauma Season‚ÄĚ due to demand going up in our local hospitals. Donating in the summer, and around holidays, is more important than ever to help keep the blood on the shelves so our surgeons and doctors can help those in need at a moment‚Äôs notice.
  • Blood donors will do more in one hour than most will do in a lifetime.

Blood Drive Specific Themes:

  • Your mission – should you choose to accept it – is to report to the Southbridge Mall
    on September 1 for your chance to save up to three lives in your community.
  • ¬†No jumping out of planes, scaling buildings or spy work required. We just need you
    (no stunt doubles allowed) to roll up your sleeve and donate blood.
  • ¬†The mission is valid for one day, and your action will take about 60 minutes. We are
    counting on the success of your mission to provide blood to patients in need in
    your area.
  • ¬†Perform the mission successfully and you will receive a limited-edition t-shirt in
    exchange for the community’s gratitude. Your lifesaving sacrifice will not go
    unnoticed.
  • ¬†It’s time to fight for the greater good.
