So I have just finished giving blood for the 7th time (not much, but it’s a start). I give because I have it, and it’s a minor inconvenience in my day (and I get to eat as many powdered donuts as I can snarf back, with very little guilt). I have used blood products, my family has, as have friends, and I think it’s important to pay back.
If you are in Canada, contact the Canadian Blood Services or click on this link to find a clinic near you, if you are in the States, I think you still go through the Red Cross. If you can’t give blood, or don’t want to, donate some money then, or better still, volunteer to help. I never grew up to be a doctor like I thought I should (sometimes), but at least I am helping someone now.
I challenge bloggers (expect a tag from me soon), to give!
