Whenever we have a birthday or angel day for the girls, we always try to do some kind of charity or service project. This time for Chloee's Angel Day yesterday, I donated blood. Chloee was hospitalized for the majority of her life and had a blood transfusion after one of her surgeries. I often wonder who donated that blood for her and gave her that gift so this time I went in and donated myself. I really can't believe I've never done it before - it was super easy and my blood will probably go to help 3 people who need it.
If you haven't donated before or haven't in awhile, I hope maybe you will think about doing it and giving up a half hour of your time to help someone else that you don't know. Something good comes out of giving with no thought of anything in return.
Then, you can take some pics and you come back and scrap all about it! Cause I've got a very special freebie for you called Donate Blood, Save a Life :)
My dear hubby gets the Donate Blood Wuss sign - he said he was afraid of needles... I'm making him next time though :)
