You can save 3 lives when you donate a single pint of blood
Remington College has partnered with America’s Blood Centers and the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America to hold blood drives at every Remington College campus across the nation. 3 Lives aims to promote blood donation, particularly among minority groups like African Americans, whose blood typically contains unique antigens critical for fighting hereditary conditions, like sickle cell disease.
The program is named because of the huge difference you can make: one pint of blood (the average volume of a single donation) can save up to three individual lives. Mere minutes of your time can literally have an impact that’s larger than (a single) life.
Students, staff and community members are encouraged to join us in this critical, life-saving campaign.
- All of them: Remington College campuses involved nationwide
- 2,650: pints of blood donated in 2010
- 2,750: pints of blood donated in 2011
- 16,200: approximate lives saved or helped
- 70,000: people with sickle cell disease
- Next: Let’s match pints donated to people with sickle cell disease – please help!
"[3 Lives highlights] the need for minority blood donors as we provide much-needed blood for hospitals and blood centers."
– Jack Forrest,
President and CEO of Remington College
