Today I saved up to THREE lives!! Am I a paramedic or a doctor? Heck no! Blood makes me sick! Then how was I able to save those lives? I donated blood through the American Red Cross!
How do I give blood if I hate the sight of blood? Easy, I don’t look! I close my eyes when they prick my finger to test my iron and I close my eyes when I donate. It is easy and takes about an hour! The best part is wearing the “Be nice to me I gave blood today” sticker and eating a cookie when done.
Today was my fastest time yet, 5 minutes and 30 seconds to fill the bag! I laid back, squeezed the ball and sang along (in my head) to the radio. Before I knew it, I was done and eating a peanut cluster and drinking grape juice.
My first time giving was in August and I’ve given 3 times since!
Do you give blood? Why not?
