This April is an opportune time to begin the lifesaving tradition of donating blood during National Donate Life Month.
In 2003, President Bush proclaimed April as National Donate Life Month in an effort to raise awareness of the critical need for blood, organ, tissue and bone marrow donations. The American Red Cross joins the United States Department of Health and Human Services to celebrate this month by urging healthy, eligible individuals to become regular blood donors.
