World Blood Donor Day
The first time I gave blood was last year, in conjunction with reading "Eat Right for Your Type."
Neither my mother, nor I had any record of my blood type and after experimenting with a home test, decided to find out for sure by giving blood.
The experience was fast, virtually painless and extremely rewarding. I confirmed my blood type and helped fill the blood bank shelves.
June 14, 2010 is World Blood Donor Day.
I sincerely urge you to find a local Blood Donation Center and give blood. You will be helping someone in the most generous way possible.
Plus, you'll get some of the nifty Nexcare bandages pictured in the photo above.
