Di’s Bloody Birthday Bash!

3 /50

My birthday is coming…June 11th! In lieu of birthday gifts this year, I’m hosting a virtual blood drive.

Top 11 reasons why you should donate blood for my birthday:

1.Giving blood is sexy, in a vampiric sort of way.
2.You don’t need all that blood, really.
3.There’s a blood shortage, and it literally saves lives.
4.You might need blood someday, and you’ll wish you’d donated now because karma.
5.Free cookies and juice!
6.Way cheaper than buying me a birthday gift.
7.Red is a pretty color.
8.Meet nice people before they stab you a little.
9.It is safer than risking a paper cut on the envelope of the card you’d have to send me.
10.It’s just a flesh wound.
11.Sometimes simple things like childbirth, lung amputation, or cancer require bags and bags of anonymous donor blood. When one of those bags is yours, you’re a hero. #Beahero

To get started, make your pledge by clicking the red button above, and then visit redcrossblood.org to schedule your donation appointment. You can give at a locally hosted blood drive or at a permanent Red Cross blood donation center.

On behalf of blood recipients everywhere, THANK YOU!! Please pledge to give blood today.
