In the month of new beginnings, January now is the perfect time to pursue a New Year’s resolution that will surely give you a sense of fulfillment. For a change, you might want to get involved in offering blood donations and make it a yearly goal in commemoration of the oncoming National Blood Donor Month 2020.

What is National Blood Donation Month?

A necessity that is often overlooked, blood, is the main highlight of the National Blood Donation Month. Celebrating almost 50 years of service, the American Red Cross strives to collect as much blood as they can to aid those who are in need of blood transfusions. In January, blood donors are more anticipated since there is high demand during the winter seasons due to the struggle caused by harsh weather conditions and seasonal diseases. To combat the lack of blood donations in the winter season, blood drives encourage healthy people to become regular blood donors for the National Blood Donor Month.

How to celebrate National Blood Donation Month?

For as long as you comply with the health requirements of your local blood drive, the best way to commemorate National Blood Donation Month 2019 is to become a blood donor. Regardless of what your blood type is, your blood donations will be of great help to hospitals and organizations that aid patients who need blood. If you are not an eligible blood donor, you can also play your part by encouraging your family and friends to get involved.

Before finding your local blood donation drive and jumping into the bandwagon, there’s much for you to learn and look into to know what you’re getting yourself into. You also might be wondering why it’s important to provide blood donations. Well, there’s a whole lot of reasons that might make you want to become a regular volunteer for blood donations, but most of all you have the chance to give the gift of a healthier life to those who need it the most — be a hero today, and save lives!

Why is it important to become a blood donor?

  • Blood is a necessity that has no substitute.
  • Even just one pint of blood can rescue around 1 to 3 people.
  • Blood donations are also used for research purposes, particularly to find cures for illnesses that are transferrable through the blood.
