Last week I got a call that supplies of my blood type were low and would I please come in. Well, absolutely. While at the blood center yesterday I saw a chart that indicated that only 7% of Anglos have my blood type, A-. Whether your type is relatively rare (O-, B+ or - and AB+ or -) or fairly common (0+ or A+), please go down and give your pint. According to the Red Cross 40,000 units of blood are needed every day in the United States but only 5% of healthy Americans donate.
