A few Stats:
The number of whole blood and red blood cell units collected in the U.S. in a year: 13.6 million
The number of blood donors in the U.S. in a year: 6.8 million
Although an estimated 38 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood at any given time, less than 10% of that eligible population actually do each year. Let’s give blood!
