Press Release


The San Diego Seals are proud to join the American Red Cross in their Missing Types Campaign.

The letters you see missing may not seem like a big deal. But the letters A, B and O make up the main blood groups. And for a patient in the hospital needing blood, it’s everything.

Only 3 out of 100 Americans donate blood, yet every two seconds someone needs it. Fewer people are donating blood to help patients. We are trying to change that by joining the Missing Types movement and fill in the missing blood types.

By donating blood you’ll help kids battling cancer, accident victims, and patients fighting life-threatening conditions. You’ll also partner alongside celebrities, iconic brands, donors, volunteers, and families raising awareness about why blood donations are crucial. No matter your blood type, we need you. Together, we can fill the missing types.

The Seals will be out at the San Diego County Fair on Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15 from 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM at the Del Mar Arena with the American Red Cross’ Bloodmobile. Seals forward Austin Staats and transition player Johnny Pearson, Salty and the Sirens dancers will be there throughout the day. Stop by, say hi and donate blood this weekend!
