Upcoming Blood Drive....make your appointment!!

Awhile back I mentioned a blood drive being held in honor of two amazing boys--Zach and Sam. You can read their story, as well as find lots of good reasons why you should donate blood here: http://www.freewebs.com/zachnsam/

 Last month I donated blood for the first time. It was something I had thought about doing before, but really never made the effort. As I sat there during the donation, I was reading the posters on the walls. Each one had a picture, and then a quote from someone about why they donate. One in particular really struck me. A woman, who had never donated before, now donates regularly after her son's open heart surgery. This will be me. I have vowed to donate blood every two months (which is as often as you are allowed); and I am fortunate to have my mom, Kate, and Missy to do the same. We have standing date every two months; give blood and then go to dinner.

Please don't wait, like I did, until you or someone in your family needs blood before you donate. So many people out there needs blood everyday, and it is a gift that most everyone can give.

(My appointment is for 6PM if anyone wants to get dinner before or after ;-) )
