Care to share… perhaps you might… possibly consider donating a pint? Happy National Blood Donor Mont

Blood donor month is aimed at raising awareness and participation in assisting the healthcare systems in providing valuable blood to those in need. According to the Red Cross, “5 million American patients need blood every year, and each donation of a pint of blood can help save up to three patients’ lives.” 
Many may be squeamish with the idea, but recognizing the value of donating roughly 20 mins of your time (and some blood of course!) you could be unknowingly providing a life-saving solution for a future person that you know in the case of an accident or operation! You will quickly replace the blood that you donated, and you shall be able to continue on with your life knowing that you were part of a small few who actually donate (according to the Red Cross only 3 in 100 Americans donate blood!).

HOW DO YOU PARTICIPATE?

Step 1. Find a blood donation center near you by clicking here or here. If there isn’t a blood drive or donation center near you, volunteer to host one in your school, community, or faith centers.

It is that simple and you can have the confidence of knowingly that you actively aided in life saving medicine within our country. If you still find yourself nervous about the idea than BRING A FRIEND! If one friend doesn’t give you enough confidence….than by all means BRING FIVE FRIENDS…. whatever you need to get you to become and alumnus of the Blood Donors Club!
