I donated blood for the first time this year, and I was honestly shocked at how easy it was! Here's me with Ariel who was such a pro, I didn't even feel anything when she stuck me with the needle! So I promise the process is super simple!

If you're wanting to donate blood, you can do so by downloading the American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit the Red Cross website by clicking here, or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Through those routes you can set up an appointment for more information. A blood donor card, or driver's license are required at check in.
