Feb. 1, 2023 — Nonprofit blood services provider Vitalant urges all eligible donors to help meet the critical patient need for blood donations. Those who share the love and make a heartfelt difference in February will receive a $10 Amazon.com Gift Card redeemable by email.
February is also Heart Health Month. In addition to helping save lives, Vitalant donors receive a free mini-physical checking their pulse, blood pressure and cholesterol level. With each donation, donors can help save more than one life and track their wellness information in their secure and confidential online portal account.
Donors of every blood type are needed; the need is most severe for type O blood. O-negative is the universal blood type that can be transfused to any patient when there’s no time to match. O-positive is the most in-demand and transfused blood type. Platelet donations are also critically needed every day. About 50% of platelet donations go to help cancer patients.
