Resolve to Donate Blood Regularly in Honor of National Blood Donor Month
For medical emergencies, ongoing treatments, and surgeries, blood is the staple upon which a patient’s life depends. There is no substitute for blood. The Nebraska Community Blood Bank’s (www.ncbb.org) only hope is the blood received through volunteer donations from people like you.
Did you know that less than seven percent of the population provides 100 percent of the blood that is used for transfusions? In addition, more than four million people get a second chance at life each year because of blood transfusions made possible by volunteer blood donors!
Blood donations are a life-saving gift with the power to bring more tomorrows.
Make a resolution to become a routine Nebraska Community Blood Bank blood donor in 2017. All are encouraged to donate blood at least once per season. Regular donations are needed for whole blood, double red cells, and platelets—call today to find out the right donation type for you! To book one appointment or even a full year, call (877) 488-9414 or visit donor.ncbb.org/web.
As a way to thank blood donors for their selfless diligence, you will be eligible for incentives and promotions that are offered throughout the year. This includes drawings for men’s basketball tickets in January!
