Did you know that just 3 out of 100 people in the U.S. give blood? The fact is that there simply aren’t enough people giving blood, and the American Red Cross is launching the Missing Types campaign to urge the public to fill the gaps by making an appointment to give blood or platelets this summer. During the campaign, the letters A, B and O – the letters that make up the main blood groups – are disappearing from major brand logos, social media pages, signs and websites to draw attention to the critical importance of blood donations. Just last month, the Red Cross experienced a critical shortage of type O blood, and summer blood shortages are not uncommon. Donors can help fill the missing types by making an appointment to give by visiting, using the Red Cross Blood Donor App or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

All they need is compassion, objectivity, and a commitment to children.
