(WFXG) - Today is Georgia's Blood Donation Day. Governor Deal made the announcement last Friday.
The American Red Cross asked that each state proclaim a state blood donation day. The red cross thanked the governor, telling us "The need for blood is constant. Right now, type O blood donors are critically needed. The support of Governor Deal to declare today Blood Donation Day is invaluable. We appreciate every donor who answered the governor's call and made a pledge to help save lives."
