Every two seconds,someone in the United States needs lifesaving blood. Whether it is a mother giving birth, a child fighting cancer, individuals battling sickle cell disease, an accident victim, or a surgical patient, the need for blood is critical, and there is simply no substitute.
The American Red Cross is privileged to help meet this constant demand by providing about 40% of the country’s blood supply—more than any other collection agency in the U.S. And we are proud to serve as an essential partner to thousands of hospitals, transfusion and cancer treatment centers across the country, including more than 100 right here in Minnesota.
"Throughout our lives,many of us will have a loved one who will need blood, or we may need blood ourselves. We all share the responsibility of ensuring that blood and blood products are available when needed. Blood is the most precious gift that you can give to another person and your gift will save or sustain a life… perhaps many lives.” Phil Hansen, Regional CEO, American Red Cross Minnesota and Dakotas.

In addition, your support allows us to conduct rigorous testing and research for infectious diseases, operate the American Rare Donor Program, and lead efforts to diversify our nation’s blood supply.
