PSA Toolkit

Have you ever had a bad day? You know the one where you need more donors, blood drives are canceled, the weather is rainy, and hospitals call for more blood you may not even have. We’ve all had those days. Our donors have bad days too, and we can be the solution to turn their day around. Through a grant from Terumo Blood and Cell Technologies, ADRP is releasing the the first of many educational videos and resources.  Video and graphic files are too large to post here, they are all hosted in a Google drive. If you are unable to access the drive, please contact

This package includes:

  • High-quality full production commercial, with audio files
  • Toolkit on how to add your logo to the video, upload to YouTube, your website, and social media outlets, and how to run a digital media ad.
  • Social media graphics in English and Spanish.
  • Template letters to use with local representative and with broadcast stations to run the PSA.

Additional resources will be added throughout the year.
