happy birthday to me!

0 /25

They say it’s better to give than receive, Which is why I’m donating my birthday to the American Red Cross! As a  blood recipient, I am here today because of their generosity.  (A+ in case you’re interested)

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 30 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!

What your donors are up to...

Take a photo of yourself donating blood and share it! Just use #Giveblood
