I am a huge advocate of doing something good rather than giving something up for lent. As a nursing student, I am aware of how serious blood shortages can be and how huge of an impact this can have on patient’s lives. In fact, every 2 seconds someone in the U.S. is in need of blood. Thus, for lent this year, I decided to help others by giving up blood! I will be donating blood once a week until Easter and brining a new buddy with me each week.
However, I knew I could take this vow a step further by getting other people involved. I am seeking help from my friends and family to do good this Easter season and save lives by donating blood! One blood donation saves up to three lives. My goal is to get at least 34 donations throughout these next few weeks to save ONE HUNDRED LIVES by Easter!
Please spread the word and help me save 100 lives!! Take fun photos and videos of your donation adventures and share on instagram or facebook using the hashtag #100lives or tag me @100livesbyeaster to share the love and spread the word!!:)
Make an appointment to give blood to the American Red Cross. Let’s all partner up and save some lives this Easter season!!:)
