I used to help my Nana out with blood donor clinics when I was a pre-teen/teenager. Now that I’m older, I appreciate the time and energy she was donating to help save others’ lives. I recently became an American Red Cross volunteer myself, and have also started to give blood. In memory of her and for my 45th birthday, I invite you (if you can) to pledge to donate blood. The campaign will run from today (my birthday) to the 25th anniversary of my Nana’s death on February 2, 2024. Love to you all!
