Rise Up and Give, Today!

Texas Blood Institute is encouraging donors to rise up and give! Each donor will receive their choice of Rise Up & Give T-shirt and one adult admission to the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, April 1 through April 30.

“Nearly a year of the COVID-19 pandemic has put incredible strain on the blood supply,” said John Armitage, M.D., president and CEO of Texas Blood Institute. “Whether they’re fighting cancer or a blood disorder, or overcoming trauma, patients in our community hospitals depend on blood every day. Patients are the reason we’re asking anyone and everyone who is able to donate blood or plasma to ‘rise up and give’ as often as they can.”  Donors receive choice of color limited-edition T-shirt

Individuals aged sixteen and up are urged to give blood. 

Blood drives will be managed according to CDC safety recommendations. Masks required. Texas Blood Institute is committed to maintaining the safest standards for blood collection, testing and transfusion.

Blood donation typically takes only about an hour, and one donation saves up to three lives. Appointments are encouraged for social distancing, and can be made by calling 1-877-340-8777, or clicking here to find a blood drive near you.
