Host a blood drive
Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. This could be a little girl in the ICU or a mother with Stage 3 leukemia. If you’re worried about needles, don’t be—most blood donors compare the experience to a mild, split-second pinch! The entire process is very safe and very fast, and you will feel amazing knowing you potentially saved up to three people.
When you donate blood, your donation undergoes 13 tests, 11 of which are for infectious diseases—such as HIV and the West Nile virus. If any of these tests return positive, you’ll be notified immediately about a diagnosis that may have remained hidden until it was too late.
