Give Blood

Source: None via Kokomajojo on Pinterest

The number one reason donors say they give blood is because they "want to help others."
One donation can help save the lives of up to three people.
A healthy donor may donate red blood cells every 56 days, or double red cells every 112 days
Donating blood is a safe process. A sterile needle is used only once for each donor and then discarded.
Blood donation is a simple four-step process: registration, medical history and mini-physical, donation and refreshments.
More than 38,000 blood donations are needed every day.
Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood.

Today we had a blood drive at work.  
It was my first time giving blood.
It was such a painless process I was kind of mad at myself for not donating sooner.
If you can, give. You never know if one day you will need the favor returned?
