Who is your donation helping?

Local patients need blood transfusions for many reasons like cancer, chronic illnesses, blood disorders and surgeries. One thing they don’t have to worry about when they are facing a health challenge is blood being available because of donors like you. Did you know Bloodworks supplies nearly 98% of the blood used in Western Washington through donors like you?

Why give?

The blood supply for our region depends on thousands of local individuals every week who make the decision to give blood and help keep folks safe when they need the gift of life-saving blood. Did you know…

  • A total of 30 million blood components are transfused each year in the U.S.
  • Only 5% of the population donates
  • Each day, nearly 900 people must donate with BloodworksNW to meet the local need
  • The blood used in an emergency is already on the shelves before the event occurs
  • Every 2 minutes, someone in western WA is receiving a transfusion
