Sophia can't become a blood donor until she's 16, but she's already helping save lives through blood donation, by encouraging others to give.

Our hearts go out to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, Castle Rock Police and the families of those affected in the officer-involved shooting Sunday morning.
Help us celebrate National Blood Donor Month! Whether you post a "selfie" on Facebook when you give blood or casually mention to a friend that you are a blood donor, knowingly or not, you're helping spread much-needed awareness about helping fill a need many Americans may take for granted.
