Why Donate?

The reason we donate is to help save lives. Every donation can help save as many as three lives. Have you ever wanted to know whose life you helped save? These are the faces of Commit for Life – the mothers, children, husbands and neighbors whose lives your donations have helped save.

Read and watch their inspiring stories here in our Commit for Life vignettesawareness ads and calendar. They are the reason we donate.

Meet 13-year-old cancer survivor Zach.

When Zack received a transfusion during his cancer treatment, he told his mom, Debbi, about his wish to meet the donor whose blood he received. She suggested he send The Blood Center a note of thanks to all blood donors.

"I think it's a great thing for people to help other people they do not even know," Zach said.
