Sometimes we share stories of children saved by blood donors and medical teams after a shocking accident or sudden trauma. But there are so many stories of kids who rely on your continual generosity in order to maintain happy, healthy lives. So before we get to that lovely long-sleeved T-shirt you see above, meet an adorable young blood recipient named Daniela.
Daniela, 6, needs blood about every three weeks to live and manage a rare genetic blood disorder. It sounds scary, and it is. But thanks to the generosity of people like you, there's a lot of joy in this family's life. As Daniela's mom posted recently online, "Because people donate blood, my daughter is alive and living her best life!"
Daniela had a transfusion the day before Thanksgiving and another just over a week ago. She will likely need one again around the new year. As you can see, the need for blood doesn't stop for the holidays.
Just like Daniela and her family, we appreciate your time during the busy holiday season, especially since there is an urgent need for blood right now.
Come to donate by Jan. 5th and receive a special long-sleeved Red Cross T-shirt as our way of saying thanks, while supplies last.*
Will you give more life in the next few weeks?
