Platelets Explained in Two Minutes
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. About 2 million units of platelets are transfused each year in the U.S. Every 15 seconds someone in the U.S. needs platelets. You can help by donating platelets through the American Red Cross. Visit http://redcrossblood.org/platelets or call 1-800-RED CROSS for more information.

Give more red blood cells. Make a Power Red donation.
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
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.

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
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.

Platelet Donation: “It saved our daughter’s life”
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

We treasure our history this March is Red Cross Month
More than 75 years ago, March was first proclaimed Red Cross Month in 1943 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to raise awareness of the organization and its humanitarian mission. All U.S. presidents since Roosevelt have designated March as Red Cross Month to recognize how the American Red Cross helps people across the country and around the world through its workforce powered by more than 90 percent volunteers. The Red Cross responds to more than 62,000 disasters a year, most of which are home fires. In January alone, Red Cross volunteers helped about 24,000 people affected by more than 5,700 home fires across every state. Disasters can cause other critical needs too. This winter, thousands of blood donations have gone uncollected due to snow storms and extreme cold—underscoring the constant need for eligible individuals to donate blood. #redcross #history
