Tabula Rasa HealthCare American Red Cross Blood Drive

Blood can only come from volunteer donors…patients need you!

 

Use RapidPass to make your donation quicker!

 

Think about this statistic:

38% of the world’s population is eligible to donate, BUT only 4% actually do.  Help change that

The Benefit:

When you donate one pint of blood, you can potentially save THREE lives, give someone longer time on this earth, give memories- you will be a HERO to many

Facts:

Blood can’t be manufactured; it can only come from volunteer donors.

Reasons someone may need a transfusion:

  • Car accident: some car accident victims can require up to a hundred units of blood
  • A Premature baby
  • A Cancer patient: On average 1 million people are being diagnosed with cancer every year.

Prepare:

Before donation you want to hydrate with some extra water, and eat a balanced meal, try and add iron rich foods to your diet.  Please bring ID

The process:

To give 1 pint and to change lives takes roughly 45 minutes from registration to canteen.  You will check in, we will then at the health history table check your blood pressure, iron, temperature, and pulse.  Then ask some confidential questions and if you are deemed eligible you will lay on a bed and give 1 pint of blood.  After, at canteen you will sit for about 15 mins and have snacks.

How you can make a difference:

Every person can help in some way or another.  Please encourage donation, spread the word of upcoming blood drives in the office, and donate yourself.  If you are unable to donate, please ask someone to donate in your honor.
