Kelsey is able to celebrate the magic of the holiday season with her family, thanks to generous blood donors who helped save her life when she experienced a complication after giving birth.

"It was very clear to me that the reason why I was able to be a mom to my kids and get a chance to watch them grow up was because of donors. Without strangers’ acts of kindness, I wouldn’t have had that opportunity.”

As Kelsey and her husband raise their children, she is constantly reminded of the gift she’s received: the experience of watching them grow up. She shares her story now to encourage others to think of the impact they can have or the family they could help.

“I hope my story motivates someone to give and to understand that this gift is so small by effort, but the impact goes far beyond. It goes well, well beyond,” said Kelsey.

Thank you for giving the GIFT OF LIFE to patients like Kelsey.

When Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s blood bank shelves look like they currently do, Dr. Jennifer Andrews, pediatric hematologist and blood bank director, is making gut-wrenching decisions that she’s never faced in 15 years as a physician: “Do I have enough blood today to run a full-schedule operating room? Do I have enough blood today to treat all the patients with cancer who need a transfusion? Can we continue to accept massive traumas today because, you know, we might be running really low on blood,” she explained.

The American Red Cross is where people mobilize to help their neighbors—across the street, across the country, and across the world—in emergencies. Each year, in communities large and small, victims of nearly 66,000 disasters turn to neighbors familiar and new—the nearly 330,000 volunteers and 23,000 employees of the Red Cross.

Through nearly 275 locally supported chapters, more than 6 million people gain the skills they need to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their homes, communities and world.

Roughly 3 million people give blood—the gift of life—through the Red Cross, making it the largest single supplier of blood and blood products in the United States. And the Red Cross helps thousands of U.S. service members separated from their families by military duty stay connected.

The American Red Cross Blood Donors is currently experiencing a severe blood shortage. If you haven't already, please consider donating today. There are several upcoming blood drives in Livingston County, New York. Click the link to find the one nearest you.
Merry Christmas or however you celebrate.
Went today to give at the 21 Hours of Giving at the Oakdale Event Center, Oakdale, MN. As always, such a well organized, 2 day event with fabulous singers, musicians, food, drink and prizes. Of course, the give-away of the annual tee-shirts that I've collected over the years. Thanks to all those Red Cross workers there today. It was another well attended event and they were all so wonderful even though they were working so hard to keep up. It is truly a "warm and fuzzy" for me knowing that I could help with someone's life.
I'm CMV negative (and O+), is there anything extra I'm supposed to do when I donate? Do the staff already know when I book the appointment so they will have the pediatric bags, or is there something I'm missing when I schedule a donation? A few donations ago, I casually asked if my blood was going to help a baby. I was told they didn't have pediatric bags (or something like that). Not 2 days after I donated, there was an appeal for CMV negative blood. I hate the thought of a baby needing blood, me having it and eager to give it, and a bureaucratic error keeping my blood from helping them. So is it just automatic or am I supposed to do anything beyond just scheduling a donation in the app? Thanks.
I’ve always donated blood because I believe it is a simple and free way to really help people and maybe even save a life. My Dad died in October from an aortic aneurysm. The night he died, I was able to see just how much blood is often needed to even try to save a life. As I sat in the ER and looked around the room, I saw the bags and bags of empty blood that they had used to try to save my own Father’s life. Sorry for the graphic picture I’m painting but it made me happy in that heartbreaking moment thinking of my blood donations over the years possibly helping a family like us and I wished I could personally thank the people who took that hour out or so of their day to try to help save my Dad. Yesterday was my first donation since he died and I believe in signs that he is still with me and I also believe a red cardinal that comes to my yard is my friend Father visiting me and when I was done donating yesterday they gave me this t-shirt and I’m taking it as a sign that my Dad is happy and healthy somewhere with my Friend's Dad having some laughs. The blood supply is dangerously low at the moment so if you have time the next few weeks and looking for something to do, spend an hour saving someone’s life. I promise you’ll feel amazing after and if you give over the next few weeks, you’ll get this t-shirt too.
Would it be good for Red Cross to give guidance to donors re: the relative shortages of platelets / whole blood / plasma? So for example a donor arrives to make a donation and the donor is asked to switch from the scheduled donation type to another type (if the donor is eligible to make that other type). My understanding is the need for platelets is usually greater just because it has only a 5 day shelf life. But sometimes unusual things happen and it's better to give the type of donation that's needed most.
With the recent spate of tornadoes I'm wondering if whole blood is more urgently needed now than platelets. I'll make a similar post on the Red Cross platelet donors FB group.
Would like to donate blood. I'm O positive blood
