Give Blood, Give Life

So, it's the beginning of the month again, and for me that means heading to the library to donate blood to the American Red Cross. This is something I am passionate about. It takes hardly any time out of your day and you are helping save lives... what is cooler than that? The following is copied from the American Red Cross website:
Give Blood

To learn more about blood donation opportunities, visit or
call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE (1-800-448-3543).

Every minute of every day, someone needs blood. That blood can only come from a volunteer donor, a person like you who makes the choice to donate. There is no substitute for your donation.

When you make a blood donation, you join a very select group. Currently only 3 out of every 100 people in America donate blood.

From its beginning, the American Red Cross has formed a community of service, of generous, strong and decent people bound by beliefs beyond themselves. The American Red Cross blood donor embodies this principle. Please join us in our mission to maintain a safe and stable blood supply by making your appointment to donate blood today.

To find out where you can donate, visit or call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE (1-800-448-3543).

Want to know if you're able to give blood? Review the donor eligibility guidelines.

And, hopefully one day my girls will make the decision to give blood... of course, I will probably have to tell them that Edward Cullen will be the one drawing it that day... HEY, WHATEVER WORKS!!!! Have a great Monday!

  1. I don't know who Edward Cullen is, but thanks for donating. I used to do the same thing and then they made me quit after I had my transplant. So for those that do....thank you....and become an organ donor also.
