January is National Blood Donor Month
Since 1970, National Blood Donor Month has been celebrated to educate Americans about the importance of regular blood donation. Every day, about 44,000 pints of blood are needed in the U.S.to help treat trauma victims, surgery patients, organ transplant recipients, premature babies and cancer patients.
