About Commit for Life
What is Commit for Life?
It is a partnership between you and Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center that is focused on saving lives, today and in the future.
Why should I Commit for Life?
There is no substitute for blood. It has to come from one person in order to be given to another. A regular number of voluntary donations are required every day to meet the need for blood in the Texas Gulf Coast and East Texas regions.
How can I Commit for Life?
The Blood Center offers many different opportunities for individuals to Commit for Life, including:
- There is no substitute for blood and more than 1,000 donations are needed every day to help save the lives of individuals in the Texas Gulf Coast region. That is why we encourage individuals to Commit for Life to help ensure a healthy blood supply always is available.

- Making the donation opportunity as convenient as possible is key to ensuring a healthy blood supply. Groups such as businesses, churches or other faith-based organizations, high schools and more schedule blood drives on a regular basis to help ensure their employees, students, congregates and more can Commit for Life.

- Individuals who Commit for Life can save up to three lives with every donation, and volunteers who recruit 20 donors can help save up to 60 lives. That's why The Blood Center continues to encourage individuals to Commit for Life as a donor, but also as a volunteer. From assisting with a blood drive to helping with an event, many volunteer opportunities always are available.
