we need your blood…

tomorrow morning i will donate blood for the first time in my life.  i’ve always wanted to donate blood but never weighed enough to be eligible.  right now in my life, i weigh over the minimum required weight.  a friend just donated and reminded me that i need to do the same.  i’m a little nervous, but it’s the least that i can do.

did you know that: (sourced from Americas Blood Centers)

one pint of blood can save 3 lives?

much of today’s medical care depends on a steady supply of blood from healthy donors

children being treated for cancer, premature infants and children having heart surgery need blood and platelets from donors of all types, especially type O

shortages of all blood types happen during the summer and winter holidays

only 37 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood – less than 10 percent do annually

if only one more percent of all Americans would give blood, blood shortages would disappear for the foreseeable future

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DONATE! visit the American Red Cross to schedule your donation today!
