World Blood Donor Day

Today is National World Blood Donor Day. Organized by the World Health Organization, the donor drive focuses on bringing attention to the need for blood of all types.They say that nearly 40% of Americans can donate but only about 10% actually do. The American Red Cross recommends that if you do decide to donate blood, make sure your iron levels are up, and that you drink plenty of fluids. The Orlando Shootings have caused people  to stop and consider donating blood.
