Did you know that every blood donation could help save as many as three lives?  It’s a fact we all should know and share because the need for blood is every day.

Today, we are holding our third annual state-wide blood drive. Blood donations help and save lives on the daily. It’s a simple way to offer an opportunity, a chance to live and make a difference to someone in trauma or need.

According to OneBlood, one unit of blood can save three lives. Last year, we collected 515 units and today we hope to beat that record because together we can make a difference.

Our #BetheDifference blood drive initiative is an effort to help the One Blood organization maintain our statewide blood supply.  It takes more than one donor to make a difference and here at Florida Blue we know together we are stronger. 

We encourage you to join us and help save lives. Here are some great resources from OneBlood and American Red Cross to learn more about the qualifications for donating blood and how you can schedule your appointment today.
