Donor Card!

Woot!  I received my blood donor card in the mail today.  I’m making it a personal goal to donate six times a year through my local Red Cross (that’s as much as you can donate in a year).  I’m excited.  I don’t get full on giddy about most activities, but donating blood is such a rush.  I feel like I’m addicted and want to go every month.  I love the idea of helping save lives.  All I do is sit there and drink a soda and eat some cookies while the nurse draws out the blood, and I save up to three lives every time.  It’s awesome! 

I also get to meet interesting people.  The nurses are very nice and informative, and I’ve met people from all walks of life-from students to owners of local businesses.  I’m trying to talk my husband into donating with me.  He’s being a little shy about the needles. 

Every single person who can donate should donate.  It’s frackin important.


  1. Woohoo! I was so excited when I got my blood donor card. It's such a great feeling, to know that I'm possibly saving lives. No-cost philanthropy is the best.

  2. It's wonderful. I'm glad to know you also donate. I wish more people would take the time.
