There have been calls out to donate blood from both the local chapter of the Red Cross and the San Diego Blood Bank. Its hard to believe, but type O blood supply is down to only a couple of hours. Type O blood is considered a universal blood type because it can be transfused into anyone regardless of their blood type. Other blood types are also low.
So if you are reading this and are willing to help, visit the websites for the San Diego Blood Bank or the American Red Cross. Oh, yours truly did it and it only takes a couple of minutes to save a life!
