Paying It Forward:  Another Pint To Go!

It's taken seven months for my blood donating to get back in sequence with the blood drives at my day job!  I won't mention the name of the company specifically so I don't violate any corporate social media policies, but the first name starts with "J", there's an "&", and there's another "J".  As a whole, they take their obligations to the community pretty seriously, with heavy United Way and blood donations as just a couple of key activities.

The two day blood drive this week resulted in 136 units of blood counting the one they got from me!  That SEEMS like quite a bit, that's over 10% of the company giving this week, and others give "off schedule".  But factor in that Hoxworth Blood Centers supply 31 area hospitals, that's only a little over 4 units per hospital.  Obviously the demand is MUCH higher than that just one a daily basis!

 

 

We know many people CAN'T give blood for a whole host of reasons, but if you CAN, please do!  It's good for you both physically and emotionally to give, and you just might be saving someone's life!

So reach out to your local blood center or hospital!  They'll be able to take care of you, and despite what you might think about needles, they're not that bad.  Just look away for a second, you'll hardly feel it, and you'll be done within about 10 minutes or less!

"I do not share my stories of paying it forward for recognition.  I share them so that others might be inspired to do what they can, when they can, where they can.  No more, no less."  Tish Lloyd, North Carolina REALTOR®

I'm scheduled for Wednesday! Hopefully I can give this time - my iron was too low last time (steak for dinner tonight!). Thanks for the reminder - it's such as easy way to give back for those of us who can. (And BTW there is evidently a nationwide shortage for 'O' type blood)

Margie, Agree, NOT a good idea!  No mowing the lawn either.  Wheeeeee!!! :)

Carrie, Thanks for giving!  I think there's ALWAYS a shortage, especially that universal O.  I'm A- myself, and that seems to be high demand.  I almost always get a reminder call within a day or two of being eligible to give again :)

Whoever gets your blood will probably start blogging immediately. Right there on the operating table.

OH, I LOVE this post--and a great video to go along with it!

For YEARS, I was anemic (plenty energetic but, anemic from interior issues!) and could not donate. I am now healthy and able to give and LOVE doing this!  After working in a trauma operating room for years, I KNOW how badly these folks need your blood and blood products.  What a great way to give back to the community--and easy too!
