Giving blood is directly related to the gift of life because every 2 seconds, someone in the United States needs blood. One Blood was a huge part of WFLA’s Kindness Day last year, and will be participating again this year.

The Director of Media and Public Relations at One Blood, Pat Michaels, joined guest host, Farron Hipp, on Bloom, to share more about why giving blood is such a profound gift.

You can watch Bloom in the Tampa Bay Market weekdays at 2pm on WFLA News Channel 8.

Bloom is now part of DBTV Network, seen in over 300 million households worldwide, including Roku TV, and Amazon Fire.

Bloom also airs in 40 markets across the country, with a reach of approximately 36 million households, and in Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Madison, WI.
