January is National Blood Donor Month. The American Red Cross recognizes the importance of regular blood and platelet donations.
January is when blood and platelet donations may drop as people are unable to make or keep donation appointments because of inclement weather and seasonal colds and flu. At the same time, the need for blood remains constant, so it is important for all eligible donors to give blood. The Red Cross encourages all donors to make a New Year's resolution to give blood regularly to help ensure a stable supply.
