Giving blood has always seemed to me a way to literally give of myself to help others. I haven’t always been able to donate, and donating has become a way for me to celebrate my health. Blood products are also helping my husband battle chronic illness. We are so grateful to those who donate so that he can access critical therapies. Therefore – I’m donating my birthday to the American Red Cross!
I’m hosting a SleevesUp virtual blood drive and asking friends and family to pledge to give blood in the next 60 days. Together, we’ll track our pledges, cheer each other on, and, most importantly, provide a lifesaving gift for patients in need.
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.
The impact we can make together is the best gift I can imagine! Thanks for helping celebrate my birthday and for helping save patient lives with your generous gift. Please pledge to give blood today!
