United Blood Services is experiencing a dire shortage of O Negative blood and needs your help. If you are an O Neg donor, please come into one of donor centers and help save the life of another person. O Negative is the universal blood and the only blood that can be given to a trauma patient or new babies when blood can't be typed immediately.
