Give the Gift of Life
Donating blood is such a simple thing. It takes less than an hour to complete the process. That includes reading about the process, going through a pre-screen, answering a few questions, getting your blood drawn, and then sitting around eating cookies and drinking juice.
The actual drawing of blood only takes about 10 minutes. But in those 10 minutes, your much needed blood can be used to save the life of someone in dire need of blood. That need can be the result of an accident or voluntary surgery. Regardless of when the blood is used, realize that any blood used is only made possible by voluntary donors. Without voluntary donors, there is no blood for those procedures and a life could be lost.
Donating blood is literally giving the gift of life.
