Day 318 (13 Nov 2012) The Gift of Life

I’ve been a blood donor since I was 17, giving my first pint as a Junior in high school.  I’ve not always been consistent in giving every time possible, but always do when asked.  I’ve been more regular since moving to CT, and its always a good feeling to be able to help someone who I will never meet!

I highly recommend you go to www.redcross.com and find a donation site near you and give!  There is almost always a shortage, so your donation will be greatly appreciated by someone and their family!  If you don’t like needles, you won’t even have to watch them stick you or look at your arm at any time.  All you feel is a little pinch and it’s over!

Do you give blood?  Why or why not?  I’m curious to know 🙂
