Blood is good

Cut and pasted from this entry by my Pi-Con friend Sara Harvey, a.k.a. saraphina_marie:
Start the New Year off RIGHT!
By doing what?
Giving blood, folks!
It's easy, it's free, and a little goes a long way!

You also might ask if there is a special need in your area for platelets, plasma, or white blood cells. Any Red Cross donation station will take any whole blood donation, but you have to go an office for the special stuff and make an appointment specifically for that!

And if you can't give blood, give time, give money, post a reminder for others!
Done, Ms. Harvey.

I'm a regular donor; I become eligible to donate again in three weeks. I know several of you aren't able to donate, but maybe others of you are. If you can, trust me: It's worth it.
