Blood is meant to circulate. So pass it around.

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart SA541769000

At this moment I am laying on a couch, in a bus, with a needle in my arm. It doesn’t hurt and it isn’t scary, I am not hurt. There is a young man that is watching over me and taking good care to make sure that nothing goes wrong. The best part is that it won’t cost me anything, only about 15 minutes of my time.

You see, I am doing a blood donation.

There are a lot of ways in which a person can give back to their community. You can volunteer your time, you can donate goods and services, and of course, money is always needed to provide the less fortunate with the things they need to get through another day. But over the years I have found that blood donation is one of the easiest and most valuable contributions I can make. You simply cannot go to the store and buy the blood necessary to help people that have been affected by mass attacks, storms and other natural disasters, it has to come from donors.

To the young and healthy it’s no great loss. To the sick and injured it is the gift of life. Donating blood is a great way to give back.

Regardless of where you live, there is an organization or non-profit that has the ability to collect and distribute healthy blood. Why not give them a call? You may help save someone’s life.

Remember, the blood donor of today may be the recipient tomorrow.

Thank you Joe! My donation days are over although I did enjoy giving. I think it lowered my cholesterol too. They called me the baby donor because my type is rare and also had some special qualities for burn victims so I was told. Apherisis donor for about 20 years.

Hi Joseph- I have donated but Larry cannot because of medication he's on. It's too bad because he has a blood type that's needed.

Unfortunately I am not allowed to give blood over here. Having grown up and lived in the UK the US does not allow me to give blood due to the risk of mad cow disease being passed on. Oh well those who know me may agree it is a risk.
