Giving Blood On A Sunday

I donated blood today at Church which brings together a couple of worlds of mine. Twice a year we do a blood drive which I organize because it helps those in need. In full disclosure, I work at Blood Assurance which is our regional blood bank that brings a mobile donation unit to the church. We do this as an outreach to our community to provide life-saving blood to patients in the hospitals we serve.

Shipped To Save Lives – My Blood Donation Is On It’s Way @bloodassurance

These emails are always fun to get. It’s always a great feeling to know I helped someone live another day or more. Donating blood is something I do to help others which is a great story.

My Donation Is On The Way To Save The Day @bloodassurance

It’s always cool to get these emails saying my latest blood donation has shipped to help three patients in need. Donating is a great way to help family, friends and neighbors.

Help Is On The Way #blooddonor

I love it when I get this email from the blood bank where I work that my donation is on the way to help someone. It is indeed a good feeling knowing that a life might be saved with this gift of life.

Do something in your area to help folks out. It doesn’t take much. Just time and some love.

National Blood Donation Week #blooddonor #NBDW2020 @bloodassurance

Declared in 2016, the first week in September in the United States is National Blood Donation Week. September is also National Preparedness month, a month to promote family and community disaster planning now and throughout the year.

Blood donors can help in the fight of COVID-19. Convalescent plasma that comes from those who have the COVID antibodies can help save the lives of people infected with the virus.

If you can donate blood or encourage others to do the same. It’s an easy way to help make your community and the world a better place to live.

My Blood Donation Has Shipped @bloodassurance

It’s cool when something you do is going to help someone in need. My most recent blood donation has shipped and is on its way to saving 3 lives. A good feeling all around.

Donation Day At Work

I work for Blood Assurance, a blood bank in Chattanooga, Tennessee and I made my every 56 day donation of whole blood.

My philosophy is that if I ask someone to donate I need to donate myself. Today’s draw took a speedy 5 minutes because I prepared by hydrating and having a good meal before. This saves 3 lives.
