Tomorrow is never promised! Today is my 54th birthday, and I am so thankful to be here. I am deciding to save 3 people by donating blood on my birthday. I think of it as I am here, I am alive, and if I am able to save 3 people by donating just 1 pint of my blood, then I am DOING IT! After all, my blood gets replenished naturally in a short period of time. There are so many people in need of our blood to actually survive. I am so glad that I have the ability to help others, especially on my birthday. I choose to give the gift of life. Please join me.
In lieu of gifts this year, I’m hosting a SleevesUp virtual blood drive and asking friends and family to pledge to give blood in the next 4 weeks. 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!
