During this unprecedented time of fear and uncertainty, we witness daily the incredible sacrifices of healthcare professionals, EMS, military, law enforcement, and others working tirelessly to keep patients healthy and save lives. We have witnessed people coming together to support each other in any way possible, around the globe. This has become increasingly difficult with many cities, states, and whole countries in lockdown, and all of us practicing social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
We must ask ourselves:
What can I do? How can I help? What good can I bring to the world?
Become a plasma donor. It’s your turn.
The decrease in plasma donations during the COVID-19 pandemic will most certainly impact the supply of plasma protein therapies within the next year. It is our responsibility during this time to do whatever we can to protect the vulnerable patients who rely on these lifesaving therapies.
Now is the time to mobilize. From the boardroom to the cleanroom, we can all make a difference.
- Locate your nearest Plasma Donation Center
- Donate plasma. Take a picture or a quick video of yourself donating.
- Post to your social media, tag @IgNSorg, use #ItsMyTurn and #IgNS hashtags, and invite your colleagues to donate.
Plasma donation is a commitment. First donations are discarded if the donor does not return for a second time. You must donate more than once to make a difference!
