Take the Challenge!
Now through May 15, donors are encouraged to take the “Blood Donor Challenge”!
Some 1,000 donations are needed each month to meet the needs of patients in the area hospitals Oklahoma Blood Institute exclusively serves. One single donation can save as many as three lives. It usually takes no more than an hour to donate.
FEEL GOOD. GIVE GLOBALLY.
Donate now and support Global Blood Fund. Just forgo your donor recognition item offered in appreciation for your donation. In turn, Oklahoma Blood Institute will make a monetary contribution of similar value to support Global Blood Fund.
In this way, donors can doubly give - both by donating life-saving blood used locally, and by assisting blood centers in developing countries with supplies.
Support has been provided to blood centers in countries such as Kenya, Zimbabwe, Haiti, Mexico, Japan, Georgia and Armenia.
It is critical that O-negative donors donate regularly since only 9% of the population has this blood type, and can only receive this same blood type.
Having O-negative blood available is vital because it can be used by any person in the 154 medical facilities we serve who may be in urgent need but whose blood type hasn’t yet been identified.
Imagine if a family member, friend or co-worker was in urgent need of blood. Donating every 56 days, and encouraging others with O-negative blood type to do the same, ensures your loved ones would receive the life-saving blood when they need it.
FEEL THE DRIVE.
Just one more way to show your blood donor pride!
