All eligible O Negative, O Positive and AB donors are urged to please donate today.

To find a donation center or Big Red Bus near you please visit OneBlood.org or call 1.888.9.DONATE 1.888.936.6283

OneBlood s website crashed temporarily on Sunday morning.

According to Orlando mayor Buddy Dyer, the White House has lifted HIPAA restrictions to allow hospital staff to communicate with victims families.

There are false reports circulating that FDA rules were being lifted.

He said OneBlood is continuing to adhere to the longstanding federal restriction on gay men from donating blood.

We understand the sentiment that people want to help and that giving blood is a profound way to help but we are asking those who have other blood types to give us some space for now.
