Lesson 3: More people need to give platelets.

People can also schedule a time to donate by calling 1-800-RED CROSS or clicking here. Regional Executive Coordinator, Michael Smauldon from the Red Cross talked with ABC 4's Emily Clark about how people can do just that.

Patricia Heaton is encouraging those who wish to help out following the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday to donate blood. Those with type O negative blood (the universal donor blood type) are especially encouraged to donate.

Grand Junction blood banks have had a constant flow of donors in the last 24 hours after the shooting in Las Vegas.

If you are interested in donating, the Red Cross urges you to make an appointment and even bring a friend.

People interested in donating blood must be at least 16 years old and 110 pounds.

In Las Vegas, United Blood Services provided almost 200 units of blood and blood products to local hospitals treating victims of the shooting.

Cassady Watkins with the Northwest Arkansas Red Cross says they've already sent more than 250 units of blood to Las Vegas. The average donation is about one pint of blood.

Blood can't be given to a patient in need the day of the donation.

Meanwhile, a GoFundMe page set up by Las Vegas officials to "provide relief and financial support to victims and their families" has raised more than US$2.8 million. The effort began before dawn the morning after the shooting.

Rep. Ruben Kihuen, a Democrat whose district includes part of Las Vegas, visited a hospital where some victims were taken.
