It's National Volunteer Blood Donor Month!
 
In January, we honor you - the volunteer blood donors who are responsible for countless lives saved. Because of your commitment, patients like Jordan, right, receive the life-saving blood they need.
 
Born with congenital heart failure, Jordan received an artificial heart in May 2011 - and along with it, many units of blood. He received blood again with his heart transplant in October 2011. Today he is in college and thriving - thanks to you!

All whole blood donations are now worth 400 points in the Commit for Life store! The value for automated donations (750 for double red cells and 500 for all other types) remains the same.
