Missing Types Campaign
American Red Cross
June 11 - September 1
Red Cross Blood Centers
As part of an international movement, the American Red Cross will launch the Missing Types campaign to raise awareness of the need for blood donors to ensure lifesaving blood is available for patients. During the campaign, iconic corporate and civic brands, celebrities and influencers will remove the A, B and O - the main blood groups - from signage, websites and other public-facing platforms to illustrate the critical role every blood donor plays.
When the letters A, B and O vanish from everyday life, the gaps are striking. And when A, B and O blood types are missing from hospital shelves, patient care could be impacted. The goal is to inspire new and former blood donors to give this summer and become regular blood donors for patients in need in the years to come.
