The American Red Cross says it is in desperate need of Type O Blood donors.

This blood type is special because it can be used to help any patient, regardless of their blood type.

The Red Cross says it has less than a two-day supply of Type O for emergency rooms, where it is most critical.

Everyone who donates blood will be given a $5 Amazon gift card.
