Ok, I'm issuing a challenge!
(This is NOT guilt-tripping - it's a challenge!)
THE EHELL CHALLENGE - BLOOD AND NON-BLOOD DONATORS NEEDED!!!
Let's see how many EHellions we can get to join the Blood Cause!
1) If you're able (and willing) to donate, find a place near you this month to donate either plasma, platelets or blood. DO IT! No excuses!
2) If you're able to donate, but just scared of the process or the needle, let this thread be your inspiration! Just try it, if you can. Take a deep breath and just try it. You might find, like I did, that your fears are much worse than what it actually is!
3) If you're not able to donate (or not willing to at the moment), that's cool! YOU'RE STILL NEEDED AND VERY, VERY VALUABLE!!!!
Can you give up an hour of your time to volunteer at a donation site? Great! They need you! You can pass out cookies or check people in or whatever they need. Even if it's just an hour or two, see if you can help! You are just as vital to the whole process as those giving blood.And, a challenge to all of the above groups - TALK about donating blood in your community. Tell your friends, family and neighbors how important it is and how many lives can be saved. Post about it on your blogs. Tell those in other online communities. Put a flyer in a visible place where people around you can see it. Whatever you can do.
Heck, if this group right here prompts just 1 person each
to donate this month, think how many lives can be saved around us! And, how much blood can be available to those who might need it.
I say we start a movement here and get everyone we can involved in some way! Let's see what can happen if we make a committment to do this!
