The need for blood and platelets is still true today. Please consider making this precious gift of life this Christmas season. There is someone waiting for both especially this time of year.
Contact your local Red Cross office or click here for blood: http://www.redcrossblood.org/make-donation or for platelets: http://www.redcrossblood.org/donating-blood/types-donations/platelet-donation.
Have a blessed Christmas season to your and your family.
