A Bloody Good Day

I want to remind everyone to donate blood. You can donate up to 3 times a year! Most likely the blood won't go to me, but it makes it available. Hopefully, I had my last transfusion, but that makes donating blood no less important. You are helping someone else's niece, daughter, friend, or cousin. You are making someone elses climb a little bit easier.

There was a United Blood Services bus in our neighborhood today. All of the time slots were filled (actually overbooked) thanks to Chelsea and our wonderful neighbors. Forty-nine units of blood were donated and eighteen donors added to the registry. What an amazing honor! Thank you. If you didn't have a time slot you can go to London's Run at Schepf's Farm on January 29th OR to your local UBS office anytime to donate. Go to www.bloodhero.com to schedule an appointment.

The video includes bits and pieces of todays excitement and the generous people who came! I bet you can guess what song I chose :) Share the love. Share the blood. video

  2. Thanks for this wonderful reminder. Wish I could donate and I would be there in a heartbeat. Because of some blood transfusions years ago (before they strictly tested), I can longer donate. Please know that you continue to be in our prayers--many times a day. Yesterday I fasted for you too. Hugs from cold WA!

  3. Holy editing, Batman! That video was a whole new level of impressive! I can barely figure out how to load them up on my computer, let alone fashion it into something so expert! The blood drive was amazing! A couple more months and I can donate as well. Woot! It was also soooo good to see you! And by the way, you were looking fabulous (:
    Love you a TON!
