      • Starting at age 17 and stopping at age 79, one person could donate 46.5 gallons of blood if s/he donated every two months
      • 10-12 pints of blood is in the typical adult
      • Every 2 seconds someone in the US needs blood
      • Type 0 negative can be transfused to all blood types
      • 38% of the US population can donate blood but ….

less than 10% actually donate

      • Blood cannot be manufactured, it can only come from donors
