Red Cross seeking more blood donors

There aren’t enough people giving blood through the American Red Cross. In fact, for the past four years, new blood donors have declined by about 80,000 each year. In an effort to reverse that trend, we’ve launched the Missing Types campaign.
To raise awareness for the need for blood donors, businesses, organizations and individuals across the country are joining the Missing Types movement by removing the A’s, B’s and O’s, the main blood groups, from signage, websites and public-facing platforms. The goal of Missing Types is to get people to take notice and take action by donating blood.
