Remington College is urging people in the Houston (Greenspoint), Memphis, Nashville, Fort Worth, Cleveland, Mobile, and Little Rock areas to donate blood at our upcoming 3 Lives blood drives, a national effort to recruit minority blood donors and help supply local hospitals with blood. 3 Lives is held in partnership with America’s Blood Centers and the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America. The effort has resulted in more than 10,200 pints of blood collected since the program began. That’s enough blood to save more than 30,000 lives!

3 Lives Blood Drives3 Lives FAQs:

Why is it called 3 Lives?
Because ONE pint of donated blood can save as many as THREE lives.

Why is there a need for minority blood donors? Isn’t all blood the same?
Just as there are people with different blood types, there are people with different antigens in their blood — and that varies by ethnicity. According to the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, African-American donors provide blood with unique antigens that are vital for people with sickle cell disease. Sickle cell disease affects more than 70,000 people in the U.S.

Is 3 Lives just for minority donors?
Not at all. Everyone is encouraged to donate life-saving blood. Healthy adults who are at least 17 years old and weigh at least 110 pounds can give blood.

Are blood donors in demand?
The need for blood is high — in the U.S. someone needs blood every two seconds — but only about 5% of eligible donors regularly donate blood. Minority donors are in very high demand.

Where does the blood that is collected go?
All the blood collected by our blood partners goes to LOCAL hospitals and medical centers and is used to help people in the community.
