THE ULTIMATE GIFT

Donating blood is the ultimate gift this holiday season- it’s free, it’s easy, and it can help save 3 lives in Hawaii.

The need for blood doesn’t take a holiday. Yet each year during the holiday season, fewer donors show up to give blood, resulting in less blood on the shelves for those who need it most.

To show appreciation for those who give the ultimate gift, donors who give blood December 1-31, 2018 can enter to win 3 days and 2 nights at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa, round-trip airfare and a rental car. For more information and to schedule an appointment, call (808) 848-4770 or visit BBH.org.

Donating Blood: Fast Facts

Blood donations are critical. One in seven people entering the hospital in Hawaii will need blood, but only a small fraction – about 2% – actually give it.

200 blood donations are needed every day in Hawaii to maintain an adequate blood supply and fulfill Hawaii’s needs.

1 pint can save 3 lives. Because each pint of whole blood is separated into three components – platelets, plasma, and red blood cells – one donation can help the lives of up to three people.

Sign up to save lives today.  The general requirements to be a blood donor are simple:

Be in good health

Be 18 years of age or older (16-17 year-old donors with signed Blood Bank of Hawaii parent/legal guardian consent)

Weigh 110 pounds or more (Additional height/weight requirements apply for female donors 16-18 years old)

Bring photo ID with date of birth
