Tripp was always more than glad to donate blood when I (his little sister) asked him to.
Fast forward four years later to the accident – we lost Tripp, and Drew was badly injured. He used blood to aid in his recovery.
I feel the blood Tripp gave so willingly somehow came back around to save Drew.
Our family is sponsoring the second-annual “Tripp Weed Now I Can Be a Jerk Week” Jan. 24-31 to encourage folks to perform random acts of kindness to commemorate Tripp’s birthday on Jan. 31.
Please consider giving blood to honor my big brother and my nephew – one pint of blood can help save up to three lives, and you never know who might need it!
This virtual blood drive will run for a whole month to allow plenty of time for folks to give.
