Every two seconds, an individual needs a blood donation. One blood bank donation can save up to three lives. The average blood donation takes 10 minutes to complete – and donating blood takes only 1 pint of our 10 pints in our body. There’s a consistent deficit in blood banks and an unrelenting demand for blood; it’s needed for surgeries, babies, anemic people, chemo patients – so many people, and yet, there’s a constant shortage. Most importantly, there’s a major deficit in blood banks in the summer and winter seasons.
