Michigan Blood hopes donors won’t stop with this first blood drive of the year. Donors are eligible to give every 56 days, but the average Michigan Blood donor gives less than twice a year. Just one more donation would help greatly: if all blood donors gave three times a year, blood shortages would be rare. 

Any healthy person 17 or older (or 16 with parental consent) who weighs at least 110 pounds may be eligible to give blood every 56 days. Blood donors should bring photo ID (or two forms of non-photo ID). Appointments are preferred and can be made online at www.miblood.org or by calling 1-866-MIBLOOD.
