Want to know how you can make my birthday a happy one? Please commit to donating blood – that’s really the gift that I want. I’ve set a goal of 57 pints. (Seems like an appropriate number). There are many good reasons to give blood, but here’s another one – the Red Cross is now screening all donations for Covid 19 antibodies. This is not a test to see if you have the currently have the virus. It screens your blood to see whether you have the antibodies which show that you have been exposed to the disease. Very helpful information as we navigate our current situation. Thanks for helping me celebrate!!!
