Platelets Explained in Two Minutes
 
01:47
Platelets are tiny cells in your blood that form clots and stop bleeding. For millions of Americans, they are essential to surviving and fighting cancer, chronic diseases, and traumatic injuries. Over 1 million platelet transfusions are given to patients in need each year. Every 30 seconds someone in the U.S. needs platelets. You can help by donating platelets through the American Red Cross. Visit redcrossblood.org/platelets or call 1-800-RED CROSS for more information.

Give more red blood cells. Make a Power Red donation.
 
01:20
Red blood cells are the most commonly transfused and needed blood component. With a Power Red donation, you can give nearly twice the amount of red cells and help more patients. This type of donation uses an automated process that separates your red blood cells from the other blood components, and then safely and comfortably returns your plasma and platelets to you. Power up your next blood donation – give a Power Red. Visit http://www.RedCrossBlood.org/GiveMore to schedule an appointment or call 1-800-RED CROSS for more information.

Why are platelets so important? Platelets are tiny cells in your blood that form clots and stop bleeding. For millions of Americans, they are essential to surviving and fighting cancer, chronic diseases, and traumatic injuries. Every 30 seconds someone in the U.S. needs platelets. And because platelets must be used within five days, new donors are needed every day. That’s why we need you.

"A place to go when there is no place to go" Sandra's story from the Louisiana floods
 
02:18
A week after devastating flooding hit Louisiana, the American Red Cross continues to provide shelter, food and comfort to thousands of people impacted by the massive disaster and will be there in the weeks and months to come as residents recover. The flooding in Louisiana is the worst natural disaster to hit the United States since Superstorm Sandy. Early estimates predict the massive Red Cross relief effort in Louisiana could cost at least $30 million – and this number may grow as more is learned about the scope and magnitude of the devastation. The Red Cross urgently needs the public to support relief efforts in Louisiana by making a financial donation today. People can donate by visiting redcross.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS or texting the word LAFLOODS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Donations enable the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to and help people recovery from these disasters.

What's In My Survival Kit
 
02:13
Hi, I'm Jamie Lee Curtis. You already know the essential items for an emergency kit. Learn More: http://www.redcross.org/prepare/location/home-family/get-kit I'm going to customize one to make it a little more user friendly for your family specifically. I think you should have a picture of your family in your kit. My favorite thing to have in the kit is candy and games. Children have a lot of time so you want them to be occupied. Another favorite: rechargeable flashlight. Dental Floss! Almonds or chips! I live in earthquake country, where there will be a lot of broken glass, so I suggest solid shoes for every member of your family.

Stories from American Red Cross Donut Dollies
 
03:02
They chose to serve armed only with humor and compassion. They came from all over America, for many their first time away from home. The troops gave them their nickname – the “Donut Dollies.” At the request of military authorities, the American Red Cross sent teams of young women—all college graduates—to Vietnam beginning in 1965 to serve as Supplemental Recreational Activities Overseas (SRAO) workers. Their main activity was to conduct light entertainment and audience participation programs for service personnel, featuring such things as quizzes, games and musical performances. They also served refreshments to the troops in the tradition of the traveling Clubmobiles of World War II and the Korean War. These so-called “Donut Dollies” provided their services at stationary Red Cross recreational centers and traveled by helicopter, truck and jeep to bring “a touch of home” to the troops in the field. In the peak year of 1969, 110 young women operated 17 SRAO units in Vietnam. It was estimated that they reached nearly 300,000 servicemen each month that year.

Red Cross Stories Trailer
 
01:58
In May 2012 we embarked on a journey to tell the real stories of the American Red Cross -- the stories that we know so well but most people have never heard. To do that, we sent out 300 kits to Red Cross storytellers around the country. Without the promise of fame or fortune and with a significant sacrifice of their time and privacy, hundreds of those helped wanted to lend their voices and tell their stories openly and honestly. They bravely opened their hearts to us to share stories that are inspiring, tragic, uplifting and unbelievable but, above all, filled with moments that show humanity at its best. Here you'll find a selection of powerful films we've received. This is the story of the American Red Cross.

Platelet Donation: “It saved our daughter’s life”
 
02:51
At the age of six, Liviya Anderson was rushed to the hospital. She was bleeding internally and needed an immediate transfusion of platelets to stop the bleeding and save her life. Thankfully, because of generous, volunteer donors, platelets – the clotting portion of blood – were available for Liviya. As doctors worked to treat her rare disease, Liviya received almost daily transfusions of blood and platelets over a period of three months to help keep her alive. Platelets must be used within five days of donation which means new donors are needed every day to help patients like Liviya. Please book your appointment now at: http://www.redcrossblood.org/give
