Every day, around 4 in 10 people can’t donate blood.
For some, it’s a temporary thing, because of things like low iron levels. For others, it’s permanent, due to certain medications, somewhere they lived, or a chronic health condition.
If you’re in the latter group, don’t feel left out.
We have an easy way you can help us in our lifesaving mission, doing something you do on a regular basis – buying from Amazon. It’s the Amazon Smile program, and it actually doesn’t cost you a cent.
All you have to do is:
- Go to Smile.Amazon.com
- Click “Get started”
- Log in to your Amazon account
- Search for “South Texas Blood & Tissue” and make it your charity of choice
Once you set up, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to support multiple programs at South Texas Blood & Tissue, through The Blood & Tissue Center Foundation.
Being an Amazon Smile member doesn’t change what you pay for anything.
So far, Amazon has donated almost $268 million to charity in the United States through the program.
Other types of donations where you can make a difference can be seen at SouthTexasBlood.org.
