Currently, there are only six units of Type O blood available for every 100,000 people, but at least two times that amount is needed every day.

"Type O-negative is the universal blood type and is what emergency room personnel reach for in the most serious situations when there is not time to determine a patient’s blood type," said Dr. Pampee Young, chief medical officer of Red Cross Biomedical Services. "Type O-positive blood can be transfused to any positive blood type patient and is also critical in trauma situations. We are asking donors to give blood as soon as possible to ensure patient needs can be met in the days and weeks ahead.”

Those who donate blood through June 10 will receive an Amazon gift card via email. In addition, donors who make an appointment from May 24-28 will receive an exclusive Red Cross-branded T-shirt while supplies last.
