The South African National Blood Service (SANBS) will again be taking part in the worldwide Missing Type campaign, from June 11 to 18.

The end of the school year means the Blood Center's schedule of high school and college blood is greatly reduced and the recent holiday weekend meant reduced activity at CBSI Donor Centers and mobile blood drives, leading to a loss of about 800 donations over the Blood Center's full service region. "We're asking donors to step forward over the next 100 days and help make sure the blood supply for local hospitals keeps ahead of patient needs".

"Imagine life without the letters A, B and O, let alone scrabble!" said Mlambo. "But the truth is blood is needed every two seconds in the United States". "Because you never know when you or someone you know is in desperate need of the blood", Iverson said.

You can join the #MissingType movement by donating blood to the American Red Cross.

Lily Dotson and her family know how serious blood shortages can be for patients.

While the SANBS applauds its regular donors, more volunteers are needed to ensure the target of 3 300 units per day is maintained, she adds.

Blood and blood products are a critical part of everyday medical care including major surgeries, medical procedures, cancer treatments and managing disease.

In fact, for the past four years, new Red Cross donors have declined by about 80,000 each year. This is not just a Red Cross trend, but a challenge blood collection organizations face across the country and around the world.

But during the summer months, when blood supply is at its lowest, it's up to the public to help families like the Vandermarks.

Blood donors help patients like 10-year-old Jaidyn Braithwaite recover from life-threatening conditions.

The event celebration was first started in the year 2004 aiming to raise the public awareness about the need for safe blood donation and unpaid by the healthy person. "This will inevitably cause a spike in the demand for blood transfusions", said Mlambo. "There are blood drives happening every day if you type in your zip you can probably find three or 34 in your county".
