Donate the right type for your type
Based on your blood type, personal characteristics and, often, where the need is greatest, you can ensure that you make the most of valuable gift. While a whole blood donation can be made 3-4 times a year, you also can donate just one part of your blood—red blood cells, plasma, or platelets—and provide even more of the life-saving gifts patients need. Whatever type of donation you choose, there is more than one way to save lives.
