How To Help Those In Need After The Las Vegas Shootings

How To Help Those In Need After The Las Vegas Shootings

Bonfils Blood Center is asking people for donations after 58 people were killed and 515 were wounded in the deadliest mass shooting in US history.

Former NSYNC singer and Las Vegas native Lance Bass tweeted his frustration at the ban: "How is it STILL illegal for gays to donate blood??!"

Corley said Blood Centers of the Pacific, which has donation centers in Santa Rosa, Napa and San Rafael, stands ready to send blood supplies directly to Las Vegas.

The tech platforms themselves said they were working to remove the false stories when they saw them. The fake news was "algorithmically replaced by relevant results", Google said, "within hours".

Inland Northwest Blood Center sent 55 units of blood to Las Vegas following Sunday night's mass shooting at a country music concert.

Quite remarkable, the City of Las Vegas had enough blood units-a total of 200 pints to be exact-to give to the victims, according to Scott. "I want to donate and I'm not allowed". It is also recommended to make appointments to give blood through the coming days and weeks. "It doesn't really take too long and I think it's important because a lot of people need it", Ruiz explained.

They say they typically see an increase in blood donations after tragedies.

Stephen Paddock had been married in the past and lived with his girlfriend, Eric Paddock said, but he didn't know of any children. Eric Paddock said he first learned of the shooting early Sunday when all five phones in his home started ringing.

In the midst of a tragedy like this, it seems even more absurd that gay people can't donate blood. Those donations need to be replenished locally, and the blood center wants to be prepared for any more requests it might get from Nevada. INBC does encourage making an appointment if possible-so it will go more quickly for all of you.

In both the U.S. and Canada, men can't donate blood if they've been sexually active with other men in the last 12 months, though the federal Liberals campaigned on ending the ban.
