GIVE BLOOD AND PLASMA. GET IN THE GROOVE. 

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Giving life through plasma donation

Get answers before you give

We answer top donation questions about safety, frequency and whether it’s going to hurt (Hint: Some people say they hardly feel the pinch at all!)

Ready to give?

Blood and plasma supplies are running low, but by donating, you can help end the shortage and help save lives.

GET INTO THE HABIT OF GIVING

A single blood donation could save up to three people1. But did you know you can safely donate blood every two months2? And you can safely donate plasma up to two times a week3! Since more than 125,000 people rely on plasma-derived therapies in the U.S. alone4, donating is a feel-good habit worth repeating.
