What Is My OneBlood Journey?

My OneBlood Journey is a program that will notify you when your donation is on its way to a hospital, and will even let you know which hospital your donation is going to.

Next time you donate, look out for your OneBlood Journey email to see what hospital your donation was sent to.

1. Your Donation

Thank you! Your donation has started its amazing lifesaving journey. There is no substitute for blood. Generous donors are the only source.


2. Processing

Once you have finished donating, your gift’s journey has just begun. Your unit of blood is sent for processing, and the sample tubes are sent to the lab for testing.

3. Testing

Each and every unit of donated blood undergoes 18 state-of-the-art tests to ensure it is 100% safe for transfusion.

4. Prepare for Shipping

Meanwhile, your unit of blood is being prepared for hospital shipment. Depending on your blood type and donation method, each unit is optimized for patient use.

5. Your Donation Is on Its Way!

Local hospitals send us their requests for the blood they need on a daily - and sometimes hourly - basis. My OneBlood Journey will now notify you when your unit is on its way to a hospital!

6. Message My Donor

For some, the journey may continue through our Message My Donor Program.

“Got the first OneBlood Journey email and I thought it was pretty awesome. I felt it would be a pretty cool idea to fill out a map and start adding pins where my donations are going.”
