The actual process takes 20minutes

The story of Patrick Earley, a Huntington Beach man who has been donating platelets for 18 years
INCREASE AWARENESS OF BLOOD DONATING
We learned, that donating blood may not only benefit the person who received the blood cells but also improve the health of the donor.We learned this when we participated as volunteers at the American Red Cross and shared with some donors.This learning matters because every single blood donation can help save up to 3 lives, and every 2 seconds, someone in America needs blood.In light of this learning we need to realize the importance of donating blood and getting involved in the process.KEYS TO ARTICULATE LEARNING
SPECIAL thank you to Megan, Heidi, Judy at American Red Cross located in 132nd and dodge
