I just got home from donating blood and just wanted to take a minute to encourage my readers to donate blood. It just take about 45 minutes to an hour from the time you walk in to the blood center to when you leave. For some it is even shorter. It is relatively painless. There is a finger prick to test your iron that does not hurt at all and then the needle to tale you blood. I would compare this to a flu shot without the soreness afterward.
I have donated regularly since the mid early 80’s. Since I have started donating I have had two family members, my dad and a brother, who need blood. I have also had countless friends need blood during surgery or cancer treatments.
When you donate you save lives. Think about donating today. The do it.
Have a blessed day,
