People wait in line to donate blood at the United Blood Services in Las Vegas on October 2nd following the deadly mass shooting at the Route 91 festival. Those ready to help included Shannon Anderson who heard of a need for blood donations on the radio and rushed here in an effort to deal with the tragedy. And show up they did.

"So whether it's to our hospital associates or to a disaster or emergency, we feel like we can get blood to where it's needed".

"I saw the aftermath in Las Vegas and figured I better come down and donate, I had to have multiple transfusions when I lost my leg three years ago", said blood donor Victor Gregory.

By 10 a.m., ABC News estimated that the wait at one location had reached five hours, as hundreds of people lined up to try and be of service.

"We sent 200 units to Las Vegas on Sunday night", Mollaun said.

Blood is desperately needed after approximately 50 people were killed and 400 were transported to local hospitals because of a mass shooting at a country music festival.

'Janaraksha Yatra' to create awareness against political murders: Amit Shah
Responding to these allegations the CPI (M ) denied any involvement of its government and leadership in political killings. The BJP, which has so far been on the margins of Kerala politics, hopes the yatra will pitch it centrestage.

"If you have the ability to donate blood to help the cause, please do so". "And tragedies like the Las Vegas shootings tend to attract more first-time donors".

"Every two seconds in the USA somebody needs a blood transfusion and that's just on a regular day", Lambert added.

"Many of them stayed, and have already donated, and are now volunteering and passing out water to others in line", Julie Scott, a spokeswoman for United Blood Services, said, according the Times.

Blood has a shelf life, officials say, so it is important that donations are given on an ongoing basis.

Phoenix residents can also give blood to the American Red Cross.

Now, thanks to the outpouring of love, support and blood, the Las Vegas area is all set for donations at the moment.
