How to Save 4 Lives


Did you know that giving blood can save up to 4 lives? Most of the time we think of blood being used or needed for emergencies, but it is also used for people with cancer, heart disease and sickle cell anemia.

One person can donate one pint of blood, which could be used or given to up to 4 different people. Anybody over the age of 17 and who weighs at least 110 pounds, has the ability to give blood. Giving blood is easy and can give you a great feeling knowing you have helped save another person’s life.

Before donating blood it is suggested you do the following:

  • Drink plenty of water and/or juices
  • Eat a good breakfast or lunch
  • Avoid eating exceptionally fat foods beforehand
  • Wear comfortable clothes for easy access to veins

Give the gift of life!
