Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood. Donating just one pint of blood could save three lives.
The American Red Cross is looking to amp up its donations. Summer is a slow season for donations, especially with the Fourth of July right around the corner.
"There's an 85 percent chance that you or a loved one is going to need it some time in your life, and you'd hate for it not to be available when you need it," said Craig Jackson of the American Red Cross. "So take the time and really try to get out and give."
