According to the fact page of, every two seconds, someone needs blood. Each year, 4.5 million Americans would die without the help of lifesaving blood transfusions.

"This was a really great opportunity for us to give back. They told us donating blood could help save three lives," Brown said. "It's great to know we may be impacting 69 lives."
