Did you know?

  • All donations are made strictly on a volunteer basis. There is never any monetary reimbursement for a blood donation at UCLA.

Reasons why we Need YOU!

  • Every day in the United States, blood is needed in hospitals and emergency treatment facilities to care for patients with cancer and other diseases, for organ transplant recipients and to help save the lives of accident and trauma victims.
  • Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood.
  • More than 38,000 blood donations are needed each day.
  • Just one blood donation can help save up to three lives.
  • Sixty percent of the U.S. population is eligible to give, but only 5 percent of those eligible actually do.

Donate Blood. Save A Life. Be A Hero.
