MAKE A RESOLUTION TO SAVE LIVES IN 2015

Dec. 31, 2014 – January is National Blood Donor Month and LifeShare Blood Centers is asking you to make a resolution to give blood in 2015. All blood donors giving in January will receive a “Make Your Resolution Matter” t-shirt as recognition of their blood donation.

Blood donors may schedule appointments to donate three times during the year and upon their third donation receive an insulated LifeShare tumbler. Participants can sign up for the program at www.lifeshare.org or any LifeShare center.

“Less than 40 percent of the population is eligible to give blood, but less than 10 percent actually do and all the patients in our community count on them. We’re asking everyone who can to give this year to help ensure no patient goes without blood when it is needed to save their life or improve their health, ” says Tina Hooper, spokesperson for LifeShare Blood Centers.

Give blood at a LifeShare center or at a mobile blood drive in the area. Call your local center or go to www.lifeshare.org for hours and blood drive locations.

Founded in Shreveport, La. in 1942, it is a nonprofit community service provider governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees. LifeShare is a member of America’s Blood Centers and the American Rare Donor Program, is licensed by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and accredited by AABB.
