There is a national blood crisis, and the Red Cross is urging people to donate.  

According to Tom Hinman of the American Red Cross, the national blood inventory is at an all-time low. “The Red Cross and other blood banks across the country are trying to rebuild the inventory.”

He said that in ideal conditions, hospitals would have a four to five day supply of blood on hand, but currently, most have less than a one-day supply on their shelves.
