First celebrated in January 1970, National Blood Donor Month raises awareness about the necessity of blood donations and honors donors who help patients. The winter season is an especially difficult time for blood donations. Severe weather causes cancelled blood drives and many potential donors may be infected with the flu.
If you have never donated blood before, this month is a perfect opportunity. Kick off the first month of 2015 by helping others.
