Later this morning, I have an appointment to donate blood. The blood drive is being held at the Reston, Virginia YMCA and is sponsored by the American Red Cross.
Giving blood is an easy and, relatively painless, way to make a very big difference. There is always a great need for all blood types.
I try to give every 12 weeks. As an added benefit, I get a check of my blood pressure each time I donate and it is recorded on my donor card.
Many of us have flexibility within our schedules that would allow us to dart out for an hour to donate blood. By calling 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767) you can set up an appointment.
If you would like to find a blood drive near you, consult the American Red Cross Make a Blood Donation site. By entering your zip code, you can find an upcoming drive. If online scheduling is availble for the drive, you can make your appointment online. Otherwise, you can call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to schedule your appointment. Here in Northeren Virginia, we have a local donation center that is almost always sponsoring a drive, so it is relatively easy to find a time that works within your schedule.
Remember how important it is that we are constantly replenishing our blood supply. Please consider giving an hour of your time for this very important effort.
