Be A Hero, Give Blood

Sure, the surgeons were able to save the life of last night's gunshot victim, but they couldn't have done it without the help of a blood donor. Donating your time to donate blood helps keep people alive. Please consider being a donor! Visit the American Red Cross website to learn more or find a blood drive near you.

The donation I made on this past Wednesday brought my blood donation total to 3 gallons. Yippee!

Also, in some parts of the US, blood donations are handled by United Blood Services.

Three gallons... that's amazing!

I got to 23 pints in the UK (it would have been more, but I tried to give platelets on a number of occasions (and failed as my blood pressure was too low to get the blood out of my body!), which knocked me out of the system for a year). They won't take my blood here in NZ because of the risk of BSE/vCJD :-(
