Your Chance to Do a Work of Mercy

Just got a call from the Puget Sound Blood Center. New Jersey called and they badly need blood and platelets after the storm. I’m on my way. If you can spare and hour or so, think about doing likewise. If you have type O, you are particularly needed since you are either a semi-universal donor (I can give to all positive blood types), or a universal donor (if you are O negative).

Your country needs you. Plus, its the only life-saving act that involves eating a cookie.

    I can’t give again until November 30, but I’ll pray for everyone who is giving blood.

    I had an appointment to give last night, but I stayed home on account of the storm. I rescheduled, and the next day they could give me was December 24th. I was going to say no, but then decided it would be my anonymous Christmas present to some poor slob in dire straits.

    I’m a nurse on a hematology ward, we give transfusions All The Time. It really, literally saves lives, every day, not just when there’s a catastrophe, so God bless everyone who donates.

      Amen, Rebekka. I’ve heard that blood centers often get rushes after events like this, but the need for blood is constant. Giving whole blood is easy and quick, and can be done every 56 days. If Sandy has moved anyone to become a blood donor, let me encourage regular donations!

    Donated for the very first time today. :)
