LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Some well-known blood types have gone missing this summer.

The American Red Cross launched its "Missing Types" campaign in Louisville Monday. 

The campaign encourages new donors - or those who have not given recently - to donate blood.

The international movement includes removing the main blood types, the letters, A, B, and O from brands, signs, and websites.

The missing letters represent the gaps when people don't donate and the critical role every donor plays.

"Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood," said Jennifer Adrio, CEO of Red Cross - Kentucky Region. "That's more than 40,000 patients who need blood each day.

"In a given year only three percent of the population donates, and each year the blood donor base is shrinking." 

The campaign runs until July 3.

You can help by joining the #MissingType movement today: make an appointment to give blood by visiting RedCrossBlood.org/MissingTypes, using the Red Cross Blood Donor App or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
