I was raised to believe that if I am able to give something that someone else needs, then I should do it. Several people in my life have need blood transfusions due to cancer or other illnesses, so this cause is very close to my heart. This is why I’m donating my birthday to the American Red Cross.
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 60 days. Together, we’ll track pledges, cheer each other on, and most importantly, provide a life saving gift to those in need.
To get started, make your pledge by selecting the red ‘PLEDGE TO GIVE BLOOD’ button above, then visit www.redcrossblood.org to schedule a 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. Thank you for helping me celebrate my birthday and for helping save lives with your generous gift. Please pledge to give blood today!!
