When you commit to give for life as a Carter BloodCare donor, you give hope to patients in need.

Whole blood or Power Red, especially from blood donors who are of African descent. Patients with sickle cell disease, who are predominantly Black, can require multiple blood transfusions every year. Donated blood must be very closely matched to the donor’s blood type to avoid transfusion-related complications. Since most patients with sickle cell disease are Black or African American, the most compatible blood type match is most often from a donor of the same race or ethnicity.
Type O, especially from blood donors who are Black.
AB Elite, because plasma helps maintain blood pressure and other vital functions.
AB positive, AB negative. Type AB, the universal plasma donor's blood can be given to any patient needing plasma. Make an even greater impact for patients in need by giving an AB Elite plasma donation.
A single whole blood donation can help more than one person.
All blood types are needed
