What You Must Know Before Giving Blood:
This explains how YOU can help us make the donation safe for yourself and patients who might receive your blood. PLEASE READ THIS INFORMATION BEFORE YOU DONATE! You will be asked to sign a statement that says you understand and have read this information the day you will be donating. Red cross will be asking questions that are of safety for the patients who receive your blood. They will ask for identification each time you try donate.(Name, date of birth, etc) All information you provide is confidential . You will also be interviewed by a Red Cross employee to make sure your health history is okay with donating.
To Determine If You Are Eligible
To Donate We Will:
You will get free juice, crackers & cookies.
You will weigh one pint less when you leave than when you came in.
It's easy and convenient - it only takes about an hour to an hour and a half.
It's something you can spare - most people have blood to spare... yet, there is still not enough to go around.
Nobody can ask you to do any heavy lifting as long as you have the bandage on. You can wear it for as long as you like. It's your badge of honor.
You will walk a little taller afterwards you will feel good about yourself.
You will be helping to ensure that blood is there when you or someone close to you may need it. Most people don't think they'll ever need blood, but many do.
It's something you can do on equal footing with the rich and famous blood is something money can't buy. Only something one person can give to another.
You will be someone's hero - you may give a newborn, a child, a mother or a father, a brother, or a sister another chance at life. In fact, you may help save up to three lives with just one donation.
