Why are blood donations so crucial?

Published On: Feb 28 2013 09:41:13 AM CST

Do you ever wonder why blood donation centers are always encouraging people to donate? According to the American Red Cross, it’s because the need for blood donations is so great.

According to the Red Cross, someone in the U.S. needs a blood donation every 2 seconds.  To cover this need, more than 44,000 blood donations are needed each day.

The Red Cross says that each year about 30 million blood components are transfused.
