While a New Year’s resolution to save a life might seem a bit outlandish, it’s actually quite doable. Did you know that every two seconds someone needs blood? According to LifeServe Blood Center, 1 in 7 individuals in the hospital require blood. Moreover, only 10 percent of those eligible to give blood do so annually. 

 

Donor Eligibility Includes:

  • In general good health (must not have a common cold)
  • Sixteen years of age or older; those under 18 will need parental consent
  • Weigh at least 120 pounds
  • Normal blood pressure, temperature, pulse, and hemoglobin screenings
  • Not pregnant
  • Not under physician’s care for any serious illness or injury

As you set your good intentions for 2016, consider saving a life and give blood!
