I donated blood once when attending university. And...I ought to do it again. I figure if I wear this bracelet, it will help remind me to go do so sometime this month. (You can buy one at my artfire shop to help remind yourself, to encourage a friend who has thought about doing so, or...maybe you just like how the bracelet looks and it's in the colors suitable for V-day which happens to be right around the corner...shop link at the top right of this blog...)
Become a part of a select group. As of recent, statistics show that only 3 out of every 100 people in America donate blood.
People need blood minutely (yes, minutely...as in every minute of every day). The only way they can get it is if somebody volunteers to give their blood. I challenge you to do the same this month, if possible...and comment about your experience here. I think it'd be great if you even commented about your experience and gratitude of being on the receiving end of getting blood. I'll keep you updated on my experience in donated. Find a blood drive near you.
(Funny story: So...after I donated blood while attending university, the blood drives kept calling and asking for my blood saying that not a lot of people have it. My now husband, then boyfriend, and I got in a heated argument in the general direction of whose blood they wanted more. We both swore it was our own. So...anyway...when we got pregnant, the doctor mentioned that because of my blood type, for health reasons or whatever, she needed to know my husband's blood type...to make a long story short...we have the exact same blood type.)
