  • People encouraged to donate blood

World Blood Donor Day falls on the birthday of Karl Landsteiner (June 14, 1868).

McGuire noted the Red Cross suggests people should make sure they have a full stomach and aren't dehydrated if they plan on donating. This is to help increase awareness that without donations of blood types A, B and O, we can't save anybody.

The Red Cross has more information at its website here. It's not just blood: it's keeping families together.
