You think you can't do anything to save lives? Think again!
Everyday there are so many people who need blood to stay healthy and alive. Blood Source is one Blood Bank that helps people (us) give something so valuable to others who need it. It is estimated that almost everyone, at one time or another will need blood. It can save their life. Imagine that a loved one you are very close to needed blood. Wouldn't you do everything in your power to help them? So what's the difference between your loved one who needs help and someone else's loved one? Not to brag, but my dad has donated blood over 1180 times. That is approximately 148.5 gallons. I can't even begin to imagine how many lives he has saved. That is amazing! :) He has an account with Blood Source for our Church, and four times a year, we have a blood drive at Church. All of the units of blood from that drive and whoever else donates outside of our drives, is put into our account. Anyone in our Church who needs blood has access to the Church account. That includes a six-year old girl who attends church with her parents. This past year, ('07), she was diagnosed with leukemia. We had a blood drive in honor of her. Thankfully, she is now in remission, but will still have chemotherapy treatments and blood transplants for the next (at least) 2 years. She couldn't be doing as well as she is without blood donated from people who want to make a difference in the world. You can join that cause. Donate Blood. It helps everyone, including you, sooner or later. Blood Source website: www.bloodsource.org
