My dad found a quote by Mother Teresa years ago and it still resonates with me today…”We cannot do great things on this earth. We can only do small things with great love.”
The need for blood donations is high and each of us is able to do a “small thing” with great love by making an appointment and just showing up to donate blood. It’s safe and simple. You can save up to 3 lives with your donation. Sure there are those who need blood because of accidents and surgeries, but there are people with chronic illness that depend on blood transfusions to just to live.
I am asking you to give a small thing with great love. Just a little bit of your time and make a difference that doesn’t cost you anything but the gas to get there. Make a list and do any other errands while you are out. Bet you even get a snack when you are done!
It doesn’t matter where you live. If you use the link for this Sleeves Up blood drive you can find where to donate in your area. Post a picture or just a message on social media and use #smallthingsgreatlove
It’s another way to make a difference. So just go for it.
