The American Red Cross is pleading for people to donate blood.

The organization says it collected about 27,000 fewer blood and platelet donations over the holiday season.

The Red Cross says there also tends to be fewer donations in January due to weather and seasonal illness.

The blood type that is in highest demand is Type O.
