It takes about an hour to make a whole blood donation — from the moment you walk through the clinic door, to the moment one of our volunteers shows you the way out. The blood you give will be used within days to help save or improve someone’s life. Every donation counts."It saved my life," says Jade, who received emergency transfusions of blood and blood products when she hemorrhaged after giving birth to her baby daughter.
