Daily Prompt: Treat

We all need something to reward us, to keep us going. I enjoy a good treat as a way of motivating me. Everyone has their own ideas of what a treat should be. Food, favors, or other things are the fuel that can make us all work a little harder. Sometimes its just a matter of indulging yourself for no particular reason at all.

Winter Weather Creates Blood Shortages in the East | Time

Blood donation clinic

This is true for the blood bank I work for. We are facing shortages in O- and O+ blood types.

With illness and resetting of personal routines after the holidays its tough to get people in. This is a time of year you have to do a little more to help save lives.
