For those who don’t know, I tested positive for COVID-19 in April and was very lucky to have mild symptoms. After I recovered, it was very important to me to donate plasma which seemed so simple to help those who were more severely affected by this virus. Unfortunately, I have an antigen in my blood that prevented me from doing so. Donating blood is an easy way to help others as an alternative in so many ways!!
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!
