The Blood Institute

From Greg Lavelle

Our mission is to fund the education for blood donation. It is critical that we reach the largest population to make them aware of the need for blood in the world. We are focused on O-Negative, but all blood can help.

More Info

O-Negative Blood Type 

  • O-Negative blood group is relatively rare compared to other blood groups.​​
  • A person with O-Negative blood is a universal donor as O-Negative blood can be transfused to any blood group.
  • Only 1 in 15 (6.6% of the population) has O-Negative blood.
  • In the event of an emergency, trauma patients and accident victims are given a fighting chance at life due to O-Negative blood transfusion.
  • O-Negative red blood cells are also the safest for newborn infants with underdeveloped immune systems as well.

Your commitment to regular and frequent blood donations is especially important to maintain sufficient supplies for your community.

It is important to remember that donors of all blood types can receive O-Negative blood, those with O-Negative blood can generally only receive O-Negative blood.
