There is always a person in need of a blood transfusion and many people do not realize how much of a difference they can make with one donation.

The American Red Cross gives many different statistics to show just how important it is to donate blood. Here are a few statistics mentioned on the American Red Cross’s website:

  • More than 1.6 million people were diagnosed with cancer last year. Many of them will need blood, sometimes daily, during their chemotherapy treatment.
  • A single car accident victim can require as many as 100 pints of blood.
  • Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood.
  • More than 41,000 blood donations are needed every day.
