The Season of Giving...LIFE

Christmas is the time of year when most of us are preoccupied with thoughts of what gifts to buy for family and friends.  Toys, appliances, and clothes usually top this list.  Well, I'm here today to say that there are better ways to "gift" others, and it won't cost you much more than simply an hour of your time!!  I'm talking about donating blood/plasma to your local bloodbanks. 

What could be MORE in the spirit of the season than to give a gift of life?  You never know when it will be YOUR turn to recieve that gift, either...food for thought, eh?  Face it, we ALL know how easy it is to be in an accident on today's roads.  Having worked at a bloodbank in the past, I've seen firsthand what one simple blood donation can do for others.
