Support American Red Cross Blood Services and help us continue to fulfill our lifesaving mission.
The American Red Cross provides the safest and most reliable blood products as an irreplaceable part of our state and nation's healthcare infrastructure.

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.” Tonia Teasley, Regional CEO, American Red Cross Minnesota and Dakotas.

A gift in any amount will help us continue to provide blood products to patients in need. 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.
