Companies remove A,B,O letters to illustration need for blood donations

"I urge countries to support voluntary blood donations as a solidarity act for all, and to ensure that national blood services have sustainable funding for blood safety programmes", she said.

Don't wait until the letters A, B and O go missing from hospital shelves.

Haviland Drainage Products, in conjunction with the American Red Cross, are partnering together in the Missing Types campaign.

Survey shows prevailing misconceptions about blood needs - a recent survey, conducted on behalf of the Red Cross, revealed a troubling disconnect between the public's perception of blood donations and the realities of patient transfusion needs.

According to the Red Cross, every two seconds, someone in the USA needs blood.

US health officials say they need to collect more than 13 million blood units annually to meet the needs of patients.

"We did a survey not too long ago and we asked people how often they think somebody needs blood", said McGuire.

Donor Information: Donors are able to see their blood type, access their donation history and view their upcoming appointments via the app. It's not just blood: it's keeping families together. Last year, when McCullough arrived at the hospital, the blood type she needed for her transfusion was not available. It was incredibly frustrating and eye-opening for Lily's mom, Susie Dotson.

Educate others in your family, community, and organization about blood donations, and encourage them to donate themselves and/or host a blood drive.

Blood and blood products are a critical part of everyday medical care including major surgeries, medical procedures, cancer treatments and managing disease. The blood donor population is shrinking, and more blood donors are needed now to fill the gaps. "Our region must collect close to 800 units of blood and platelets every day to meet patient need, regardless of the season".

"Across New Zealand, there are 110,000 active donors, all of whom save the lives of almost 29,000 people around the country every year". This is not just a Red Cross trend, but it is also a challenge that blood collection organizations face across the country and around the globe.

WHO aims to obtain sufficient blood supplies from the voluntary and unpaid blood donors all over the world by 2020.
