I was introduced to donating blood back in college during an on-campus blood drive. I remember feeling then, as I do now, that such a simple act could have such a meaningful impact on someone else in need, perhaps at a traumatic point in their life. What a gift that any healthy person can give to somebody who’s not. Maybe one day it will be me, my family member or my friend who might be on the receiving side of this gift.
All this, and cookies afterward. I’m a donor for life.
