Roll up Your Sleeves for National Blood Donor Month

National Blood Donor Month

January has been recognized as National Blood Donor month since 1970, due to the increased need for blood.  However, hectic holiday schedules, inclement weather conditions, and more people with cold and flu symptoms all contribute to significantly fewer donations this time of year.  This is compounded by the fact that there are historically more weather related injuries and traffic accidents in the winter months.  Just think—each whole blood donation can help save as many as three lives!

Check here for blood drives and donation centers near you, some even offer fun promotions like “Give a Pint, Get a Pound” where donors receive a pound of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee!

 Continue to show your support for National Blood Donor month even after you donate by wearing a festive scrub top like this one from UA (perfect for Valentine’s too!):
