Are you a relatively healthy person who is not completely self absorbed? Would you like to have your life saved if you were in an accident or developed a terrible disease? Yes? Then why aren’t you donating blood on a regular basis? It’s easy and free to do and the life you save may be your own. Do you not like needles? Seriously? Get over it. If you can’t tolerate a small prick in your arm then you should just hang your head in shame.
Blood donation centers have become high tech. Many of them have individual televisions for your viewing pleasure. Their new equipment also speeds up the donation process dramatically, so it only takes a few minutes of your time.
Did you know that platelet donation is also an option? You can donate platelets every few days, and because the process takes a bit longer than regular blood donation, platelet donation is in high demand.
Check to see if there is a donation center near your office and make an appointment for your lunch break. Or how about visiting a center on the way home from work? Is there traffic? What about detouring to a Center. You’d be sitting in traffic anyway so you won’t even be losing any time!
Donating blood is an easy and free way to help another person and make you feel good about yourself. Well…..what are you waiting for? Get up and go!
