Orlando wants your blood (if you're a healthy type O-negative)




Central Florida blood bank OneBlood has put the call out for Type O-negative donors as the summer season has put their quantities at low levels. If you're over 16, over 110 lbs, and run exclusively on O-neg, please consider donating. Your type is a universal match for those in need. C'mon, don't bogart that sweet blood. You don't need all of it.
