Be heroic

We’re putting up the bat signal. Answer the call.

Why donate?

Simply put: blood plasma saves lives.

Plasma is the clear fluid that makes up 55% of blood. It is one of the most critical components of our bodies, as it carries cells and proteins to our organs. Plasma is often given to trauma, burn, or shock patients, is used to create plasma protein therapies that help treat a wide variety of chronic, rare diseases, and is still being explored today. 

The global demand for plasma to create therapies has been steadily increasing over the years, but as of recently, it’s hit a critical mass. Now more than ever we need heroes to step up and donate blood plasma if we want to continue to treat those who rely on it.

How can I help?

It’s easier than you think. Go to your nearest donation center, donate, then go back and donate again! 

Becoming a plasma donor requires someone who is willing to save the lives of others, to be a hero. What does it take?

  • Are you at least 18 years of age, weigh more than 110 pounds, and generally healthy?
  • Can you commit to more than a one-time plasma donation? Blood plasma can only be used after you’ve completed a screening and returned for a second donation.
  • Can you bring a friend? Tell others that you donated.
  • If you are unable to donate, can you encourage others to do so?
