Organ Donation

Donate Blood and Become an Organ Donor

Your DGB for today is to sign up to donate blood as January is National Blood Donor Month. If you’re needle-phobic or unable to donate blood, make sure you're registered as an organ donor. Ideally, do both!

You can sign up to donate blood through the American Red Cross online here and know that you are helping to supply the one of 36,000 units of red blood cells needed every single day in the US. As the Red Cross is still embroiled in an absurd debate about accepting blood from men who engage in sexual activity with other men, read this article if you are prohibited from donating.

Sign up (if you haven't already) to be an organ donor here.

You weren’t really using all that extra blood and innards anyway, right?
