You've heard it before, but we’ll say it again – become a donor.
But the question really is WHY should you give? Sure, donations save lives (again, you've heard that over and over again). But how?

is separated into what we call components - red blood cells, plasma and platelets. Each of these elements is used for different medical procedures. This is how we are able to save three lives with just one donation.
