Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood, but right now blood supplies are at dangerously low levels, and the Red Cross has declared its first national blood crisis.
Blood transfusions are needed for things like surgeries, transplants and cancer treatment, and just one donation can save more than one life.
So between now and the end of March, we challenge everyone—congregation and podgregation—to collectively donate 500 pints of blood. Fill out the form at the bottom of this page and log your donation either after you’ve made an appointment or after donating so we can keep track!
You can give through the American Red Cross anywhere in the United States. There are also local organizations in Minnesota like Memorial Blood Centers. If you live outside the U.S. check with health officials in your area for donation sites.
If you’ve never given blood before, don’t worry! You can find everything you need to know for a first time donation here. It’s simple and straightforward, and you’ll be in and out of your appointment in less than an hour. The first step is to check your eligibility here, and then just make an appointment.
You know how Greg talks about “bleeding for the Kingdom?” This is our chance to do just that!
