As the national blood shortage continues, the American Red Cross urging Hoosiers to roll up the sleeve.

The Red Cross has been distributing about 12% more blood products to hospitals across the U.S. compared to this time last year.

The Red Cross needs to collect more than 1,000 additional blood donations each day to meet the current hospital demand and end the severe blood shortage. Donors of all blood types are needed, especially type O, which stands at just a one-day supply right now.

Those who donate between August 1st and August 15th will automatically be entered for a chance to win an exclusive, VIP trip for two to the sold-out 2021 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and receive a free 4-month subscription offer to Apple Music by email.

For more information, visit RedCrossBlood.org/FeelTheBeat.
