Immediate Need for O Negative Blood Donors

July 8, 2014

BloodCenter of Wisconsin offers State Fair tickets to those who come to the rescue.

July 8, 2014 -- BloodCenter of Wisconsin has identified a critical need for O negative blood donations.

As a small token of appreciation, all O negative blood donors who attempt to donate Wednesday, July 9 through Wednesday, July 16 will receive a pair of tickets to the Wisconsin State Fair.

If you have O negative blood, you have incredible potential to save lives.

O negative is the universal donor – meaning anyone can receive it. It is the blood type carried on Flight For Life and used by trauma centers and emergency rooms. It is given to newborn babies and people in urgent need, when there is no time to determine blood type.

Due to decreased donations during the summer and particularly over the recent holiday weekend, the need for O negative blood is immediate.

Please call 1-877-BE-A-HERO (1-877-232-4376) or visit www.bcw.edu/appt to make an appointment at a community blood drive or donor center near you:
