COVID Positive or Not, You Can Help a Lot!

23 /50

Harold (better known as Dad or Grandad’n) is one of our favorite guys, and he’s having a tough time right now as he battles COVID in a local ICU. Thanks to a selfless donor out there somewhere, he has had the opportunity to receive blood products that contain COVID antibodies. This anonymous donor is our hero as they have given Harold a better chance to fight this virus off completely! Donating blood is always important, but there’s an especially high need right now. I, personally have had COVID, and plan to donate blood as soon as I’m out of my 14-day window of being symptom-free. Whether or not you’ve had COVID, you can save up to three lives each time you donate blood. A large portion of blood donations also go to patients battling cancer, which is an illness that Harold has already fought and overcome in the past. We know that if he can beat cancer, he can kick COVID too! I’m challenging all of our (and Harold’s) family and friends to make an appointment with the American Red Cross and donate blood within the next 6 weeks in honor of Harold. It’s easy to find an appointment that’s near you through the American Red Cross. The impact we can make together through this Virtual Blood Drive is the best way I can think of to pay it forward and help others in need. So #SleevesUp, take a #SelflessSelfie, and help me reach my goal of 50 pledges to #DonateBlood!

What your donors are up to...
