American Red Cross launches 'Missing Types' campaign to raise awareness on blood donations

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The American Red Cross has launched their 'Missing Types' campaign to raise awareness for lifesaving blood donations and to urge the public to make an appointment to give blood or platelets this summer.

During the 'Missing Types' campaign, the letters A, B, O -- the letters representing the main blood groups -- will disappear from brands, social media pages, signs, and websites to illustrate the critical role blood donors play in helping patients.

When A, B, O and AB blood types go missing from hospital shelves, patient care and medical treatments are affected.

If you'd like to donate blood, you can make an appointment online or by visiting one of the blood drives below.

How to donate blood

All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age in most states (16 with parental consent where allowed by state law), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
